    Introduction Similarly to the previous chapter, by resorting to the tools of Evolutionary Game Theory (EGT) we study the role of intention recognition in the evolution of cooperative behavior, within the repeated interaction setting. But in contrast to the model therein, herein a model to recognize a larger set of conceivable intentions, in terms of more sophisticated patterns of behavioral strategies for the Iterated Prisoner’s Dilemma (IPD), is provided. As such, we set forth a novel strategy that is able to assign an intention to the actions of opponents—on the basis of an acquired corpus consisting of possible plans achieving that intention—as well as to then make decisions on the basis of such recognized intentions.
