Abstract:

The theory of max-min is extended to cover the incorporation of both prices of admission and previously committed resources into a mathematical model having direct application to the allocation of resources among retaliatory, strategic weapon systems. In the absence of prices of admission and previously committed resources, the model reduces to a zero-sum, two-person, continuous game with a continuous payoff function.
