Abstract:

The one-on-one stochastic duel is extended to the general two-on-one duel for the first time. The state equations, win probabilities, means value, and variance functions are derived. The case where one side has Erlang 2 firing times and the other is negative exponential is compared to the corresponding Stochastic Lanchester and Lanchester models to demonstrate their non-equivalence.
