Abstract: We further generalize the stochastic version of the replicator dynamics due to Fudenberg and Harris. In particular, we add a random jump term to the payo ff function to simulate anomalous events and their e ffects on the fi tness. Assuming a 2 by 2 game and using a particular characteristic of the jump functions we are able to estimate the ergodic measure for all games. Lastly, working with results and methods developed by Imhoff, we prove some stability theorems for an arbitrary n by n game.
