Nature of problem:
Simulation of two player quantum games described by a payoff matrix.

Solution method:
The program calculates the matrices that comprise the Eisert setup for quantum games based on the quantum circuit model. There are 5 parameters that can be altered. We define 3 of them as constant. We play the quantum game for all possible values for the other 2 parameters and store the results in a matrix.

Unusual features:
The software provides an easy way of simulating any two-player quantum games.

Running time:
Approximately 0.4 sec (Region Feature) and 0.3sec (Payoff Feature) on a Intel Core 2 Duo GHz with 2Gb of memory under Windows XP.
