Abstract:

A pursuer P and an evader E are confined to a subset S of the Euclidean plane. E, whose speed is bounded by or 1, wants to maintain the greatest possible distance between himself and P, whose speed is bounded by 1. It is shown that when S is a half-plane or a circle, E can prevent PE from falling below its initial value only if he can do so by using a strategy which keeps PE constant. The result is used to characterize d, the largest value of PE that E can maintain. Author
