comment Evolutionary distance between Canidae, Felidae, and Rodentia
Wrong.. You can actually have polytomies in onezoom. Actually looking a bit more at onezoom, I realize that it actually really is a very cool tool. It also offers great visualization of threaten statues!

Another very good source of knowledge on the subject is onezoom.org (I edited my answer to add oneZoom) but I can't tell if onezoom is more updated. Also, onezoom cannot support polytomy and will therefore not represent doubts. If I am not mistaken onezoom also don't offer list of references. However, onezoom has an awesome display!

The tree of the main branches of the placental mammals hasn't been updated since 1995. Seems pretty old indeed. In general, tolweb is a often updated, great source of information on phylogenetic relationship. If you seek for more updated and more accurate representation I think there is no better option than seeking directly through the literature.

I am using wikipedia's definition which also include bioinformatics and this kind of tools. Let me update my answer with your comment in mind.

See the "in short" paragraph that I added. I am not sure I am answering your question. You will let me know.

It is good to have questions about social evolution. It is a superficially easy field that very quickly gets quite complicated when you dig into it. +1

Sorry, it was unclear. See edit. $w(x,y)$ is the fitness of an individual cooperating with probability $x$ in a population that cooperate with probability $y$
