EUGene was written by D. Scott Bennett and Allan C. Stam.  The program is available for free download and use, but is Copyright by D. Scott Bennett and Allan C. Stam.

Scott Bennett is Distinguished Professor of Political Science at the Pennsylvania State University (click here to access homepage).

Allan Stam was Professor of Political Science at the University of Michigan, and is now Dean of the Batten School of Leadership at the University of Virginia.

EUGene was constructed as part of the project “Comparative Theory Testing and Interstate Wars, 1816-1984” under National Science Foundation grants SBR-9601151, SES-9975115, SBR-9975291, and SES-0213727.  The authors acknowledge the support of the National Science Foundation, the Institute for Policy Research and Evaluation (The Pennsylvania State University), and the Social Science Research Institute (The Pennsylvania State University).

The authors were assisted in programming by Matthew Rupert, E. Killian Seper, and James Lombardi.  Feedback and beta testing was provided by Timothy Nordstrom, Richard Andres, and Randolph Siverson.  Richard Tucker helped us by comparing the output of EUGene to that produced by his “dyad-hard” program, in the process identifying discrepancies, documentation problems, and bugs that led us to release v1.13 and v1.14.  Chris Baker, Resat Bayer, Page Fortna, Faten Ghosn, Doug Lemke, Quan Li, James Ray, Kenneth Schultz, Christopher Sprecher, and Kevin Sweeney helped us by observing additional bugs. Remaining errors and any undiscovered bugs are, of course, our fault.  Finally, we are indebted to Bruce Bueno de Mesquita, who assisted us in reconstructing prior methods, understanding equilibrium conditions, and in making logical extensions to the methods used in his construction of expected utility data.  He is, of course, not responsible for any remaining errors in EUGene.
