Pavlov was proposed as a leading strategy for realizing cooperation because it dominates over a long period in evolutionary computer simulations of the Iterated Prisoners' Dilemma. However, our numerical calculations reveal that Pavlov and also any other cooperative strategy are not evolutionarily stable among all stochastic strategies with memory of only… CONTINUE READING
