N-Person Prisoner's Dilemma: A Spatial Application

In the current issue of JASSS there is an article by Conrad Power entitled "A Spatial Agent-Based Model of N-Person Prisoner's Dilemma Cooperation in a Socio-Geographic Community" where he presents a spatial agent-based model on the N-person prisoner's dilemma (NPPD). The NPPD is a social dilemma game which is focused on the simulation of the collective actions and behaviours within social groups.

The purpose of the model is to present a spatial agent-based approach for modelling the processes of communication and cooperation within a socio-geographic community. The model itself is written in Java and utilizes RepastJ, OpenMap and JTS to simulate agent interactions, movements, and the NPPD game play to the town of Catalina, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada.

The full article can be found on the JASSS site.
