A Markov model for measuring artillery fire support effectiveness
This thesis presents a Markov model, which, given an indirect fire weapon system's parameters, yields measures of the weapon's effectiveness in providing fire support to a maneuver element. These parameters may be determined ...
A prototype decision support system for Marine Corps officer allocation policy analysis.
This thesis presents the prototype for a decision support system which permits repeated formulation and solution of the Marine Corps staffing allocation problem under various user-controlled policy scenarios. The system ...
Factors affecting the recruitment and retention of linguists in the U.S. Army
This study examined influences on the enlistment and reenlistment decisions for linguists in the US Army. Some of the potential factors considered were: previous language experience, ethnicity, age, gender, and education ...
A simulation study of estimates of a first passage time distribution for a semi-Markov process.
This thesis reports on a simulation study of parametric and nonparametric procedures for obtaining confidence intervals for the logarithm of the probability a semi-markov process enters a particular state before a fixed ...
A simulation study of estimates of a first passage time distribution for a censored semi-Markov process.
This thesis reports on a simulation study of parametric and nonparametric estimators of a first passage time distribution for a censored semi-Markov process. Four estimators are proposed and compared; Maximum Likelihood ...
