Abstract:

Previous articles In this series have covered the time behavior of force strengths, battle trajectories, and recursive relationships between battle parameters. In this edition, the general solution to the Markov equation is derived and effects of segmented battle are compared with traditional conflict modes. Survivability, lethality, and repair are compared as command options. New graphic techniques are explored to reveal fundamental features of this combat structure.
