Welcome to the lab.
In this study you will be investigating different models and theories
of the evolution of cooperation in animals. In order to conduct this study
you will need a few tools. Namely, you will need a reasonably fast computer
a little confusing, don't worry. The fact that you are reading this means
that you are almost there. The main questions are, "Is your computer
tackle the former question first.
Is your computer fast enough?
- (Your computer is probably fast enough - these specs are old). There are two things that will affect the speed at which this lab will
operate on your computer. The first is the speed of your internet connection.
If you are using the campus ethernet, you should be just fine. If you are
dialing in from elsewhere I recommend at least a 28.8k connection, although
a 14.4k could do the trick. The second aspect that will affect the performance
of this lab on your computer is your processor speed. At a minimum you
should be using a 486/66 for Windows, or a 25Mhz 68040 for Mac. Things
sure would be a lot zippier, however, if you used a Pentium for Windows,
or a PowerMac. Most of the computers in the labs on campus should be perfectly
