I'm a student studying mathematics and philosophy, and I have recently
become interested in looking at genetic programming approaches to game

I'm kind of interested in replicating some of Axelrod's prisoner's
dilemma tournaments, and confirm Martin Nowak's observation that
"generous tit-for-tat" is optimum.

However, I'm mainly interested in trying similar approaches to the
traveller's dilemma and the centipede game.  If there's already some
literature on tournaments/genetic programming approaches to this I'd
love to hear about it!

So what's a good system for doing this sort of thing in?

Thanks a bunch!
