Eco-evolutionary dynamics of social dilemmas

Wolfram Demonstrations is a service offered by Wolfram, the makers of Mathematica to host interactive computable documents (CDF).

Interactive demonstration on eco-evolutionary dynamics of social dilemmas

This Demonstration combines the results of Hauert (2006a) and Hauert (2006b);

Hauert (2006a) discusses the impact of nonlinear benefits in public goods games, while Hauert (2006b) incorporates ecological dynamics into standard evolutionary game dynamics.

Here is the CDF as hosted on the Wolfram Website. You will probably need Mathematica or the Wolfram CDF player to be installed to view the following file
