Optimal decentralized tactical decisions of isolated blue units behind red lines

Lohmander, Peter


The tactical decision problems of isolated blue units (IBU) with limited supplies behind enemy (Red) lines is analysed with mixed strategy game theory. Red has a limited number of mobile units for randomised protection and defence of potential Red targets. The Nash equilibrium mixed attack and defence strategies are determined. The sensitivity of the Nash equilibrium to possible parameter changes is determined in general form. The optimal Blue response to non-optimal Red strategies is described. The dynamics of adaptive strategy frequency changes is analysed. Easily used INTERNET software has been developed for simple decentralized optimisation of the mixed strategies
