I played The Resistance for the first time a couple weeks ago and am interested in writing a simulation program to test strategies. I know that mathematical analysis has been done on Mafia proper, but does anyone know of work that has been done to analyze The Resistance?

Do you have a link to the Mafia analysis? –  Joachim Breitner Jul 16 '13 at 7:11

I've read this one : arxiv.org/abs/math/0609534 but there are others on arxiv. –  Ralph Jul 16 '13 at 12:04

Here's a mathematical analysis of a potential winning strategy for the Resistance side: http://amininima.wordpress.com/2013/05/18/the-resistance/

And there's a thread on Boardgamegeek where they're trying to determine a formula for "spy-ness": http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/759016/using-excel-to-find-spies

Hope this answers your question!
