One can find that when b < 1.04, cooperators dominate defectors significantly on the regular r ing graph (p = 0) and the more randomness of the network, the worse the cooperation is.
Randomness enhances cooperation: a resonance type phenomenon in evolutionary games
In fact, there exists a region III beyond the shown range of b in this figure, where the cooperators vanish and there is no p can persist or enhance the cooperation.
Randomness enhances cooperation: a resonance type phenomenon in evolutionary games
While in the optimal region of p, the underlying network has the “small-world ” property: the sho rt average distance promotes the spreading of cooperators; the common cluster structure induces the clustering of cooperators, leading to the surviving and enhancement of cooperation .
Randomness enhances cooperation: a resonance type phenomenon in evolutionary games
In fact, there exists a region I I I beyond the shown range of b in Fig.3(a), where the cooperators vanish and there is no p can persist or enhance the cooperation.
Randomness enhances cooperation: a resonance type phenomenon in evolutionary games
The mechanism of randomness promoting cooperation resembles an interesting resonance-like phenomenon, wherein the randomness-induced prevalence of the cooperation evokes the positive role of the topological and dynamical randomness in the system.

The last inequality, ∆p > ∆c for unconventional superconductors, means that the pairing energy 2∆p of the Cooper pairs must be larger than the strength of the coupling of bosonic excitations responsible for mediating the long-range phase coherence with the Cooper pairs, which is measured by the energy 2∆c .

On the other hand, the large α values may also indicate that most of the 4He is burning stably (Narayan & Heyl 2003; Cooper & Narayan 2005; Cooper et al. 2006), and it is not clear how a shock would trigger a transition from stable to unstable burning.

CONCLU S ION S Unlike most previous work in wireless relay networks, which concentrates only on cooperative diversity, this work opens a new direction of exploiting the cooperative multiplexing in such networks.
Cooperative Multiplexing in a Half Duplex Relay Network: Performance and Constraints
We introduce a new simple game, which is referred to as the complementary weighted multiple majority game (C-WMMG for short). C-WMMG models a basic cooperation rule, the complementary cooperation rule, and can be taken as a sister model of the famous weighted majority game (WMG for short).
Complementary cooperation, minimal winning coalitions, and power indices
Since the process of this kind of cooperation can be nicely characterized by the mathematical operation of addition, we name it the additive cooperation rule 1 .
Complementary cooperation, minimal winning coalitions, and power indices
Cooperations in the above two examples have obvious differences with the additive cooperation rule. (i) It has multiple rather than single roles. (ii) The most efficient cooperation strategy is to let each role be played by the one who can play it best.
