Presents the basic theoretical framework and introduces the key notion of Evolutionarily Stable Strategy (ESS). The chapter addresses the issue of existence of ESS, the relationship of ESS to the standard game‐theoretic equilibrium concepts (such as Nash Equilibrium), the considerations arising in asymmetric contexts, or the implications of finite populations. It closes with an example on the evolution of cheap talk.
