First year LPS student Aydin Mohseni has had an abstract accepted for presentation at an upcoming workshop on Infinite Idealizations in the Sciences. The workshop will be hosted by the Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy, in Munich, Germany. Mohseni's talk, entitled "Fundamental Disagreements in Evolutionary Dynamics and Infinite Idealizations," will discuss the relationship between the replicator dynamics and the Moran process, two widely used ways of modeling evolutionary dynamics in evolutionary game theory. As Mohseni will argue, these two dynamics can lead to different outcomes under otherwise similar circumstances. The differences, he claims, can be traced to different idealizing assumptions. He will then discuss the consequences of this analysis. The conference will be held June 8-9, 2016.
