Abstract:

The stochastic duel is extended to include the possibility of a near-miss on each round fired, which causes the opponent to displace. During displacement, the displacing contestant cannot return the fire but is still a target for his opponent. An alternative interpretation of this model is to consider the displacement time as the time a contestants fire is suppressed by his opponents fire and that he does not move but merely ceases fire temporarily. All times are exponentially distributed. Author
