OS3311 Probability Models for Military Applications

An intermediate course in probability modeling focused at military systems and combat situations. Following a review of random variables, probability distributions, expected values and variance, we will present a selection of probability models that range from elementary models that describe static and simple dynamic military (mostly combat) related situations, to Markov models that represent more complex combat situations (e.g., tactical battle) and processes (e.g., surveillance and employment of UAVs). Prerequisites: None.
