Evolution and learning in games with randomly disturbed payoffs

    (University of Wisconsin-Madison, Social Systems Research Institute)

We consider four models of evolution and learning in games which rely on perturbations of payoffs, including stochastic fictitious play. In all cases, we establish global stability results for zerosum games, games with an interior ESS, potential games, and supermodular games.
