Convergence of Natural Dynamics to Eqilibria

Convergence of Natural Dynamics to Eqilibria

This video was recorded at 26th International Conference on Machine Learning (ICML), Montreal 2009. Recently, a lot of effort has been devoted to analyzing response dynamics in various games. Questions about the dynamics themselves and their convergence properties attracted a great deal of attention. This includes, for example, questions like "How long do uncoordinated agents need to reach an equilibrium?" and "Do uncoordinated agents quickly reach a state with low social cost?". An important aspect in studying such dynamics is the learning model employed by self-interested agents in these models. Studying the effect of learning algorithms on the convergence rate of players is crucial for developing a solid understanding of the corresponding games. In this tutorial, we first describe an...
