Generalized Lanchester-type differential equations are used to model attrition processes. This system of non-linear equations has multiple equilibrium solutions, which can be determined by a numerical technique called the Continuation Method when the problem"s dimensionality is moderate. System dynamics are investigated and shown to depend critically on a domain of attraction defined by a tube which connects the non-negative equilibrium points and contains the dominant eigenvector at those points. Principles are presented and illustrated for mapping NM-dimensional systems into equivalent two- dimensional systems. This capability is especially important when aggregating subsystems have only four mapping NM-dimensional systems into equivalent two- dimensional systems. This capability i especially important when aggregating subsystems in multi-level systems modeling. It is shown that the two-dimensional Lanchester systems have only four distinct modes of behaviour, depending on the number of real positive equilibrium points that they have. A method is described and illustrated for reallocating attrition as state variables approach zero in order to guarantee their non-negativity.

1. Introduction. In , Lanchester formulated his well-known equations of were discovered concurrently and independently by er a Red army and a Blue army, with populations R = R (t) and B = B (t) varying in time. Lanchester’s equations for Area (unaimed) Fire are: () d R d t = − α B R, d B d t = − β B R, α, β > 0. Attrition is proportional to product Cited by: 7. Book Description. Multivariate Generalized Linear Mixed Models Using R presents robust and methodologically sound models for analyzing large and complex data sets, enabling readers to answer increasingly complex research questions. The book applies the principles of modeling to longitudinal data from panel and related studies via the Sabre software package in R.

some content may be lost due to the binding of the book. Addeddate Call Pages: Solutions of generalized differential equations are found to be functions of bounded variations. The book may be used for a special undergraduate course in mathematics or as a postgraduate text. As there are currently no other special research monographs or textbooks on this topic in English, this book is an invaluable reference text for those Cited by: Therefore, the main goal of this book is to give a systematic presentation of the original generalized estimating equations (GEE) and some of its further developments.

Subsequently, the emphasis is put on the unification of various GEE approaches. This is done by the use of two different estimation techniques, the pseudo maximum likelihood (PML Cited by: On Lanchester's Differential Equations and their Transform into a Markov Transition Matrix (or, the Markovization of the Lanchester Equations) August 10th, Carlos 7 comments I have been very curious as to whether the Markovization of differential equations is applicable to all systems, linear or not.

In statistics, a generalized estimating equation (GEE) is used to estimate the parameters of a generalized linear model with a possible unknown correlation between outcomes. Parameter estimates from the GEE are consistent even when the covariance structure is misspecified, under mild regularity conditions.

The focus of the GEE is on estimating the average response over the population. Lanchester's laws are mathematical formulae for calculating the relative strengths of military Lanchester equations are differential equations describing the time dependence of two armies' strengths A and B as a function of time, with the function depending only on A and B.

Induring World War I, Frederick Lanchester and M. Osipov independently devised a series of. Now if both armies consist of different unit types, components, and each component's units can have different strengths against other components, we can summarize all the components in a vector $\mathbf{x}$, and all the relative strengths in a matrix $\mathbf{A}$, where all the elements of $\mathbf{A}$ are negative or zero, and write a matrix.

The Lotka–Volterra equations, also known as the predator–prey equations, are a pair of first-order nonlinear differential equations, frequently used to describe the dynamics of biological systems in which two species interact, one as a predator and the other as prey.
