The next meeting will take place on the 15.11. at 20:00 at the Tunnel Vienna.
The topic this time is going to be: Prisoners Dilemma Tournaments
Please have a look at the literature provided:
1) Definition and Basic Game Theory of the Prisoners Dilemma
This website contains a lot of information on game theory in general and gives an introduction. You can read the linked page but also proceed to further topics or clarify certain terms in previous basic chapters. In the NWC however we will focus on the concept of the Prisoners Dilemma.
2) Expand the concept: Iterated Prisoners Dilemma
The case becomes interesting once the Dilemma is iterated several times and/or played among different people using their own strategy. The optimal strategies in such tournaments lead to different interpretation and have significance in many fields. Here are 3 articles presenting different successful strategies. All shortly review what the Prisoners Dilemma is ( you might want to skip these parts )
Tit for Tat and altruism:
Zero Determinant Games and the evolution of cooperation:
Tribalism and the importance of communication:
Additionally: These are some online Simulators to check the payoff of your own strategies. Hope you manage to navigate through the Interface.
A generalization of the IPD is allowing strategies chosen due to probabilities. The so called Stochastic Iterated Prisoner Dilemma has quite a mathematical body (see also zero determinant games). Take a dip with google!
Additional historic information on IPD Tournaments:
If you proceed on this page with NEXT you will find all the different strategies together with their code which took stage during Axelrods first IPD Contest.
