The Evolutionary Price of Anarchy: Locally Bounded Agents in a Dynamic Virus Game

Laura Schmid, Krishnendu Chatterjee & Stefan Schmid
The Price of Anarchy (PoA) is a well-established game-theoretic concept to shed light on coordination issues arising in open distributed systems. Leaving agents to selfishly optimize comes with the risk of ending up in sub-optimal states (in terms of performance and/or costs), compared to a centralized system design. However, the PoA relies on strong assumptions about agents' rationality (e.g., resources and information) and interactions, whereas in many distributed systems agents interact locally with bounded resources....
