A closer look at how cooperation evolves
The tit-for-tat strategy in the evolution of cooperation means that your cooperation is dependent on your partner's behaviour in the previous interaction. Little is known about the conditions in which tit-for-tat appears and how it manifests in changing environments. The EU-funded E-DIRECT project investigates direct reciprocity - as a fundamental mechanism for cooperation among non-kin. It focuses on developing a theory of reciprocity in heterogeneous groups based on mathematical models. The project will also develop a theory of reciprocity in changing environments. The main goal of the project is to establish a novel framework and new tools to study the evolution of strategic behaviour and cooperation.
