Blue strike aircraft enter region ᏾ to attack Red targets. In Case 1, Blue conducts (preplanned) SEAD to establish air superiority. In the (reactive) SEAD scenario, which is Case 2, such superiority is already in place, but is jeopardized by prohibitive interference from Red, which threatens Blue's ability to conduct missions. We utilize both deterministic(More)
This paper addresses the problem of scheduling randomly arriving tasks of di€erent types at a diversi®ed service system. Servers at such a system di€er in that each may specialize in one task type, but can also perform others perhaps less rapidly and adequately than does a specialist. We consider the issue of how much redirection of tasks from specialists(More)
The delicate structure of the lung epithelium makes it susceptible to surface tension induced injury. For example, the cyclic reopening of collapsed and/or fluid-filled airways during the ventilation of injured lungs generates hydrodynamic forces that further damage the epithelium and exacerbate lung injury. The interactions responsible for epithelial(More)
A new piece of equipment has been purchased in a lot of size m. Some of the items can be used in destructive testing before the item is put into use. Testing uncovers faults which can be removed from the remaining pieces of equipment in the lot. If t õ m pieces of equipment are tested, then those that remain, m t Å m 0 t, have reduced fault incidence and(More)
1. The Problem Consider modeling and operational analysis of a generic asymmetrical service-system situation in which (a) Red agents, such as, military or facility-destructive hostile threats, arrive according to some partially known and possibly changing pattern in time and space; and (b) Reds have effectively limited unknown deadlines, or times of(More)
