Summary/Abstract: Cooperating or betraying – what pays off more? Are you able not to overeat if you eat from a shared plate? Are you saving up for retirement? What is the point of forgiving? How many grandchildren do unfaithful women have? Is evolution going forward? The first volume of Munice popular science series provides an unusual insight into game theory. It focuses on one of the most interesting problems of the interdisciplinary field: the prisoner’s dilemma. Fresh and swift, it explains its principles with the help of many original pictures and schemes.
