Topic: Software-aided analysis of quantum games
Abstract: In this presentation we will consider various aspects of analysis of quantum games in EWL protocol  on the example of Quantum Prisoner's Dilemma . We will present both symbolic and numerical approach towards searching for Nash equilibria in pure strategies as well as finding the best response cycles which lead to the existence of Nash equilibria in mixed states . We will also introduce a Python library for symbolic analysis of quantum games in EWL protocol with Qiskit integration. Finally, we will demonstrate how to run a quantum game on a real quantum IBM Q device.
