On the Effect of Quantum Noise in a Quantum-Relativistic Prisoner’s Dilemma Cellular Automaton

  • Ramón Alonso-Sanz
  • Haozhen Situ


The disrupting effect of quantum noise on the dynamics of a spatial quantum relativistic formulation of the iterated prisoner’s dilemma game with variable entangling is studied in this work. The game is played in the cellular automata manner, i.e., with local and synchronous interaction. The game is assessed in fair and unfair contests.
