We study how quantum noise affects the solution of quantum Samaritan’s dilemma. Serval most common dissipative and nondissipative noise channels are considered as the model of the decoherence process. We find that the solution of quantum Samaritan’s dilemma is stable under the influence of the amplitude damping, the bit flip and the bit-phase flip channel.
