Uncertainty and communication complexity in iterated cooperation games (2008)
Presentation / Conference Contribution
Andras, P. (2008). Uncertainty and communication complexity in iterated cooperation games. In Artificial Life XI 2008 (9-16)

Iterated cooperation games (e.g. Prisoner’s Dilemma) are used to analyze the emergence and evolution of cooperation among selfish individuals.
