Abstract:

This paper describes the basic concepts underlying the development of CENTAUR, an experimental mathematical model for a computerized war game to be used in testing land-combat operational plans at division level. CENTAUR is a two sided, free play, man-computer simulation. The game is played by two opposing forces, Red and Blue, each of which is free to make tactical decisions which are not revealed to the other.
