Abstract

Evolutionary dynamics is concerned with the evolution of populations. In a general framework, each population has its own geometry, method of adaptation (incentive), and time-scale (discrete, continuous, and others). Using an information-theoretic measure of distance, a widely-applicable stability result will be given for all of these dynamical scenarios.  A wealth of examples leading up to and beyond the main results is included. No prior knowledge of evolutionary dynamics, information theory, Riemannian geometry, or game theory is required.
