Paper Abstract

A truel, or a three person generaliztion of a duel, is a popular model in game theory of a struggle of survival. The outcome is often sensitive to the precise rules under which the truel is performed and can be anti-intuitive. We propose a quantum scheme, along the lines of recent work in quantum game theory, for the problem of duels and truels. Interference amongst the players' strategies can arise leading to game equilibria different from the classical case.
