Abstract.We have studied a spatially extended
snowdrift game, in which the players are located on the sites of
two-dimensional square lattices and repeatedly have to choose one of the two strategies, either cooperation (C) or defection (D).
A player interacts with its nearest neighbors only, and
aims at playing a strategy which maximizes its instant pay-off,
assuming that the neighboring agents retain their strategies.
If a player is not content with its current strategy, it will change… Expand

Comprehensive Monte Carlo simulation experiments show that cooperative behaviour is promoted in the multi-player iterated Snowdrift game, and may be attributed to the combination of spatial reciprocity, based on the inherent capabilities of the genetic algorithm to explore the diverse sets of agents’ strategies, and repeated interactions.
