Summary: The Center for Control, Dynamical Systems, and Computation
University of California at Santa Barbara
Winter 2007 Seminar Series
Presents
Game Dynamics
Karl Sigmund
University of Vienna, Austria
Tuesday, February 13th, 2007 2:00pm-4:00pm ESB 1001
Abstract:
Game dynamics can be viewed as a combination of game theory and ecology, with applications in
many other fields. In this talk, the role of heteroclinic attractors (consisting of saddle points and saddle
connections) will be highlighted. In usual dynamical systems, such attractors are not robust, but they
often occur (in the form of Rock-Paper-Scissors cycles) in strategic interactions. This talk deals with
examples, basic results and open problems.
About the Speaker:
Karl Sigmund attended school in the lycée francais de Vienne. From 1963 to 1968, he studied at the
Institute of Mathematics at the University of Vienna, and obtained his Ph.D. under the supervision of
Leopold Schmetterer. He then spent the following postdoc years in Manchester (68-69), the Institut
des Hautes Etudes in Bures sur Yvette near Paris (69-70), the Hebrew University in Jerusalem (1970-
