Inspection games: evolutionary and mean-field game perspectives

The inspection games is the well studied class of games with the variety of application from neuclear arms control to tax collection regulation. For the first time we suggest new perspectives for this class of games arising, roughly speaking, from the consideration of the limit of the large number of players. We consider two frameworks: evolutionary games and mean-field games, both getting a new twist in this context.
