At the Santa Fe institute I work with (and am funded by) Jim Crutchfield on his dynamics of learning project. The particular project I'm concentrating my efforts on is also being attended by Yuzuru Sato and Eizo Akiyama among others. The first work that has been published on this particular portion of Jim's project is: "Coupled Replicator Equations for the Dynamics of Learning in Multiagent Systems." which is forthcoming in Phys. Rev. E. I am working specifically on two things - some data for an extended version of the aforementioned paper by Yuzuru and Jim; and on "Multiple Agents Servicing Multiple Tasks" (MASMT) (otherwise known as the squirrel and their nut stash problem or the ducks and ponds problem). The scenario for MASMT is as follows: there is a very big prairie with many ponds, many ducks, all the ponds need to be visited (to, say, sustain the snail population), but over visiting any particular pond is bad. Given this above situation, we wish to both analyze whether the model is representative of the above problem, but also perform a dynamical systems analysis of the behavior exhibited in the above model. For more specific details, you are welcome to drop me an email.

I have also worked on a bit of economics (game theory - discrete adaptive games) with Cosma Shalizi. We are in the process of submitting our work, I will write more of it and post it here when it is done....
