Though there is a strong body of literature on ‘pure quantum games’ where pure quantum entanglement needs to be introduced in the modelling for Pareto Superior equilibria, unattainable in classical games, we demonstrate in the current paper that similar, though slightly different, results can also be obtained through classical optical modelling of normal games. The phenomenon of entanglement in classical polarization optics can be utilized in designing non- zero sum cooperation games to attain superior equilibria, the advantage of such designs being ease of implementation and robustness of entanglement, unlike fragile quantum entanglement due to decoherence. We demon- strate the foundational set up of classical optical modelling of game theory by using the basic Prisoners’ Dilemma game under full information.
