Subject: Nowak and May reference/Tom Walters

Dear Tom Walters,
      I was interested to see your brief note about tit for tat
strategies and a reference to something in Nature.  One of my students has,
I suspect, produced a somewhat similar result as a result of his computer
simulation of the prisoners' dilemma.  He has done this more or less for
his own amusement, rather than as a research project.  I am not an expert
on such matters.  Could you, or any other contributor to Darwin-l, kindly
provide me with the reference to the Nature article and the Nowak and May
reference?  We would find it interesting, I'm sure.
    Thank you in anticipation,
