Self-Organized Temporal Criticality: Bottom-Up Resilience versus Top-Down Vulnerability

Figure 1

For the bottom-up SOCT: time evolution of the average social benefit , the average imitation strength , the mean field , and the imitation strength of one of the units plotted versus time. The mean field fluctuates around 0.8 which means about 90 percent of individuals are cooperators and 10 percent are defectors. Mean field of 1 has all individuals in the state of cooperation, and the maximum average social benefit has the value 4, because this is the number of nearest neighbors on the two-dimensional lattice.
