Abstract:

The purpose of the present study was to develop a computer model which would simulate a social system in such a manner as to indicate probable psychological effects of conventional weapons employed against it. In order to provide a stable basis for the modeling procedure, a data-derived approach was decided upon for initial investigations. For the social system modeling problem the experimenter was considered to be able to manipulate inputs from a distance only. He endeavors to manipulate these inputs in such a manner as to effect a decay in system performance. This decay will be measured according to criteria provided by the experimenter himself and will be measured by the experimenter himself. The experimenter may also measure the suppressed outputs of the system by means of probes spies which communicate with the experimenter.
