X29: Basics of Game Theory: The Study of Strategic Decision Making in Splash Fall 2012 (Oct. 14, 2012)
You and your friend are arrested. You are put in separate rooms, and each is given the choice to condemn the other or remain silent. If one rats the other out and one stays silent, the former goes free and the latter gets a year in prison. If both talk, both get 3 months. If neither talks, 1 month each. What to do? Why? Game Theory concerns itself with problems, such as this classic, and their outcomes.
