Normal Forms and Unfoldings of Singular Strategy Functions.
Vutha, Amit C

2013, Doctor of Philosophy, Ohio State University, Mathematics.
We study adaptive dynamics (AD) strategy functions by defining a form of equivalence that preserves key properties of these functions near singular points. Specifically, we compute and classify normal forms and low codimension universal unfoldings of these functions. This problem is complicated because the allowable coordinate changes at such points are restricted by the specific nature of strategy functions; hence the needed singularity theory is not the standard one.
