## Glossary

- evolutionary tournament
- An evolutionary tournament is a tournament in which a virtual “population”
is created, containing an equal amount of each sort of player. The relative
score of each player as a fraction of the total in the population is
calculated, and these weights are used to determine the fractions in the
next “generation.”
- finite state machine
- A finite state machine is a simple, minimal-programming way to write a
strategy that can be used to play games in Oyun.
- match
- A match is a sequence of five games between two players.
- one-shot tournament
- A one-shot tournament is a single run of a tournament in which each player
plays against each other player in a round-robin format. The “winner” of
the one-shot tournament is the player with the highest total-sum score.
- prisoner’s dilemma
- The prisoner’s dilemma is a simple 2x2 game in which the rational decision
for both players is always to defect, while both could receive a higher
payoff if they were to cooperate.
