Consider two distinct populations with the same number of individuals . At each iteration (of time length ), all individuals are randomly matched in pairs made up of one individual from each population to play a symmetric 2×2 game. The two possible actions (or pure strategies) in the game are labeled and . Thus, each individual (regardless of the population to which it belongs) is either an -strategist or a -strategist. The payoffs of the game are , , , and (parameters), where, for instance, denotes the payoff obtained by an -strategist when he plays with a -strategist.
