n-person Battle of sexes games—a simulation study
n-person Battle of Sexes (BOS) games are examined by a special simulation study. Two types of agents are considered and there are three possible ways of making the agents’ initial decisions. The simulation study confirms the theoretical results on the existence and number of equilibria. We also investigate the effect of the model parameters on the limiting states of the system.
