dc.description.abstractThis thesis examines the differences of deterministic and stochastic LANCHESTER-type combat models. Using an example of square-law attrition, solution methods and solutions are described. A new analytic solution for equal attrition rate coefficients is given. The numerical comparison includes hypothesis about the expected force levels and the variability in the expected force levels as a function of time, initial force levels, and breakpoint force levels.en_US
