|Title||Incompetence in microbial games|
|Presenter||Maria Kleshnina (The University of Queensland)|
Evolutionary game theory aims to predict whether types of species, or strategies, may coexist or ultimately become extinct in a long run scenario. Incompetence, in this context, means players have some probability of making mistakes when executing their chosen strategy. When incorporated into evolutionary games, these probabilities perturb the fitness matrix and may change the outcome of the replicator dynamics. In this talk we introduce microbial interactions with incompetence and show how this idea may affect equilibria of the system depending on the environmental conditions. We consider different types of environments and show how environment and incompetence of players affect the survival strategy of bacteria.
