The aim of the project is to study the Evolution of Cooperation in Inter-dependent Networks. Population often have sub-groups of individual who interact and adapt strongly with each other but weakly with individuals from other groups. Such population can be sub-divided into smaller sub-population which have different rules of interaction. These sub-populations can be modeled as two or more networks with connections across the networks, i.e, inter-dependent networks. Social Dilemma games like Snowdrift games are used to model these interactions. The nature and rules of interaction can be very different in the sub-populations, but social dilemma games are inherently asymmetric in nature. Hence we use asymmetric games to model interaction across the networks (layers). We study effect of varying amount of information flow between the layers on the cooperative nature of the population in different kind of systems.
