Refighting Pickett’s Charge: mathematical modeling of the Civil War battlefield
Objective. We model Pickett’s Charge at the Battle of Gettysburg to see whether the Confederates could have achieved victory by committing more infantry, executing a better barrage, or facing a weaker defense. Methods. ...
A counterfactual study of the Charge of the Light Brigade
(Taylor & Francis, 2015-06)
We use a mathematical model to perform a counterfactual study of the 1854 Charge of the Light Brigade. We first calibrate the model with historical data so that it reproduces the actual charge’s outcome. We then adjust ...
A verification study of the stochastic salvo combat model
When the stochastic version of the salvo combat model was designed, several assumptions and approximations were made to keep its mathematical structure relatively simple. This paper examines the impact of those simplifications ...
The salvo combat model with a sequential exchange of fire
This paper develops a version of the stochastic salvo combat model in which the exchange of fire is sequential, rather than simultaneous. This sequential-fire version is built by modifying the equations in the original ...
The Effectiveness of Rocket Attacks and Defenses in Israel
(Oxford University Press, 2018-04-11)
This empirical article studies rocket attacks and defenses in Israel during operations Protective Edge, Pillar of Defense, and Cast Lead, and also during the Second Lebanon War. It analyzes publicly available counts of ...
