In the era of digital economy, people's game interaction presents complex network characteristics. In recent years, network game theory has developed rapidly, and has been widely used in group decision making, public opinion communication, voting and so on. One of the key issues in network games is how network structure influences the evolution of individual and group behaviors. This report will first introduce the basic concepts related to evolutionary games and evolutionary dynamics, and then introduce some research on evolutionary game dynamics of symmetric and asymmetric networks by the reporter and coauthors. Finally, the influence of game interaction network structure and information network structure on individual and group behavior, especially cooperative and fair behavior and public opinion dissemination in different game scenarios is discussed.

Introduction to the lecturer:

Boyu Zhang is a professor, doctoral supervisor and director of the Behavioral and Game Decision Laboratory at the School of Mathematical Sciences, Beijing Normal University.
