Cooperative Parrondos games on a two-dimensional lattice
Cooperative Parrondos games on a regular two-dimensional lattice are analyzed based on computer simulations and on the discrete-time Markov chain model with exact transition probabilities. The paradox appears in the vicinity of the probabilites characteristic of the voter model, suggesting practical applications. As in the one-dimensional case, winning and the occurrence of the paradox depend on the number of players. (c) 2006 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
