 Social Studies - The Prisoner´s Dilemma - some background information :
 How does game theory describe the evolution of cooperation?
What is a prisoner´s dilemma?   What's that? A situation? A model? A model situation!
  = real life examples for the evolution of cooperation (overview)

 Links: cold war - animals and plants - restaurants -

 At the PCs - Trade or Raid, a <Prisoner's Dilemma game> of cooperation and defection:
 Here is the programming tournament... in which YOU can take part

 What are you, merchant or pirate? - read the background story

 Trade or Raid BASIC program - Look at it, or try it out on your own PC
 Our 26 strategies in the October tournament - the BASIC code that our students used
 Which strategy has been most successful? - results of our own PC tournament

 INVITATION  to take part in a new ToR tournament
 - develop a winning strategy and e-mail us your BASIC code

 YOUR strategies and YOUR scores - Have a look to see if you are a winner or a looser :-)
