• We model the evolution of indirect reciprocity, using reputation spreading process.
• We examine the effects of false information intentionally started by some players.
• More and more gossip sessions are favored when no players start false info...

This study aimed to assess the suitability of luteal blood flow analyses measured by color Doppler ultrasonography (CDUS) to predict pregnancy at pre- and post-embryo transfer (ET) in dairy cows and to compare with the established criterion like l...

• This study quantified effects of florigen distribution on inflorescence architecture.
• We developed the phloem transportation model for florigen.
• The model predicted diverse inflorescence architectures observed in Arabidopsis.
• The model hig...

Rice (Oryza sativa) is one of the most important food crops in the world. Numerous quantitative trait loci or genes controlling panicle architecture have been identified to increase grain yield. Yet grain yield, defined as the product of th...

According to the viewpoint of the optimal strategy theory, a tree is expected to shed its leaves when they no longer contribute to maximisation of net carbon gain. Several theoretical models have been proposed in which a tree was assumed to strate...

Cultural transmission between individuals can take various forms. One-to-many transmission refers to the case when each individual in a population socially acquires cultural traits from one particular individual who occupies a special social statu...

・ A conflict between autosomal and X-linked altruism toward grandchildren is modeled.
・ With no conflicts, the latter altruism evolves under quite high cost/benefit ratio.
・ The conflict especially makes evolution of the latter kind of altruism di...

Background: Homogamy for body height has been repeatedly documented in Western societies. Nevertheless, the underlying mechanism is unclear and the reasons for its apparent absence in non-Western societies remain unexplained.

Aim: This study inve...

We consider a rumor transmission model with various contact interactions and explore what effect such interactions have on the spread of a rumor, in particular whether they can explain the rumor recursion. Through mathematical analysis and compute...

A repeated game is a formal model for analyzing cooperation in long-term relationships. The case where each player observes her opponent's action with some observation errors (imperfect private monitoring) is difficult to analyze, and existing wor...
