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 purpose of the present paper is to study systems in which different job types are present at the various servers and are processed according to a variety of scheduling disciplines, in particular in “first-come, first-served” order. Our approach is numerical, and is applied to an example which is also analyzed by means of the Gordon and(More)
Acute respiratory distress syndrome is a pulmonary disease that requires the use of mechanical ventilation for patient recovery. However, this can lead to development of ventilator-induced lung injury caused by the over-distension of alveolar tissue and by the repetitive closure (de-recruitment) and reopening (recruitment) of airways. In this study, we(More)
