In a hawk-dove game, if the benefit of winning is 10 and the cost of losing is 7, what is the best strategy to play, hawk or dove?
If the Prisoner's Dilemma game is repeated multiple times, why should you not always cheat?
Consider two breeding strategies of the fictional Woozle. Dominator Woozles can fight for a breeding territory, and if they win, will be able to rear 10 offspring. An alternative is to share territory with another Woozle which will allow each to rear 5 offspring. Sharers who attempt to share with dominators will be forced out of the territory, although they will be able to find a new territory. Assume sharers become extra catious after encountering a dominator and so will always find another territory to share the next time around, but due to lost time will only be able to produce 3 offspring. Dominators are always able to force sharers out of the territory and rear 10 young. Dominators who meet dominators will win 50% of the time. When they lose, they are not able to reproduce that season due to sustained injuries. Individual Woozles cannot switch strategies. What proportion of the population would you expect to be dominators, and what proportion would be sharers?
