## RESEARCH INTEREST

The main topics of game theory have traditionally been equilibrium analysis
and not dynamics. These days, however, dynamical phenomena among interacting
agents are getting more and more interest of many researchers, and models that
deal with open ended evolution of strategies are becoming popular, e.g., the
evolutionary models using the Iterated PrisonersDilemma. This situation may
be compared to the history of development of physics; that is, though physics
originally analyzed the phenomena that, in most cases, converge on fixed point
or limit cycles, recently physics has been enlarging its sphere of influence,
with the development of non-linear science, into chaotic phenomena. I am
interested in two aspects of game theory: the dynamics produced in static
(traditional) games, and the dynamics of games themselves in which the payoff
matrix is influenced by the players.
