A Natural History of Cooperation ?

Friday 13/01/2012 14h30 to 17h00

Why do humans, monkeys, fish, or insects cooperate? Is there a common explanation for this, possibly most fundamental element, form of 'social' interaction? We plan a small but very special BAB seminar to start the new year   -   a collaboration between three researchers from different Departments/Institutions who shed light on the mathematics, biology, and psychology of cooperation.
