Stability of cycling behaviour near a heteroclinic network model of Rock–Paper–Scissors–Lizard–Spock

Rock–Paper–Scissors is a well-known game, which also offers a simple model of competition between three species or, equivalently, strategies. When modelled in continuous time with ordinary differential equations, this system contains a heteroclinic cycle between the three distinct equilibrium solutions, each representing a steady state with just a single species.
