On the minority game: Analytical and numerical studies
We investigate further several properties of the minority game we have recently introduced. We explain the origin of the phase transition and give an analytical expression of σ2/N in the N⪡2M region. The ability of the players to learn a given payoff is also analyzed, and we show that the Darwinian evolution process tends to a self-organized state, in particular, the lifetime distribution is a power-law with exponent −2. Furthermore, we study the influence of identical players on their gain and on the systems performance. Finally, we show that large brains always take advantage of small brains.
