Example text

When δi = δ, independent of i, all rates adjust proportionately, and it is really just like measuring time in a different unit. Generally, however, invariance of the replicator dynamics requires all the affine transformations to be translations of the form v˜i (sN ) ≡ αi (s−i ) + vi (sN ), with each δi = 1, in effect. This is entirely appropriate because each utility difference vi (si , s¯−i )−vi (si , s¯−i ) equals the difference Ei (si ; σi , 1s¯−i ) − Ei (si ; σi , 1s¯−i ) in excess fitness, which is independent of σi , and so ˆi (si ) in proportional rates of growth.

It is easy to see that the set =⇒ σi∗ Ri (πi ) σi } { σi∗ ∈ ∆(Si ) | σi ∈ ∆(Si ) = of mixed strategy best replies to πi is equal to ∆(Bi (πi ; vi )), the subset of those σi ∈ ∆(Si ) that satisfy si ∈Bi (πi ;vi ) σi (si ) = 1. 3. BEYOND CARDINAL NON-COMPARABILITY The definitions above evidently imply that the preferences Ri (πi ) and the set of player i’s dominated strategies are invariant under increasing affine transformations of the form v˜i (sN ) ≡ αi (s−i ) + δi vi (sN ) where, for each i ∈ N , the multiplicative constant δi is positive.
