Battle Simulation With Lanchester Model in C#

This post will show a simple implementation of the famous Lanchester equations to simulate battles “evolution”.

For those that does not know this model, i really recomend this and this PDFs. (especially the first one). For the rest of the post, iam assuming that the reader “WILL read” these recomended texts =P.

Lanchester modeling is pretty beautiful cause it is based in very simple hypothesis and even so, it stills very usefull. (not so good as some stochastic models but good enough for lots of situations ).

In simple ways, we have a system of Differential equations to solve. There are LOOOTS of numeric methods avaliable, i choose one that for me is very intuitive and easy to implement. (using EigenValues and Eigen Vectors -> it is graphically intuitive =P)

The following code shows the Lanchester Model Implementation:
I used plain C# with .net and the alglib for math.
Actually, the alglib was used just to get the eigenvalues and eigenvectors of the lanchester diferential system. It could be easily done by “hand”. (calculate roots of the characteristic equation to find the eigenvalues and then substitute in the formal eigenvector/eigenvalue definition equation to get the eigenvectors =P).

The Squad Class (represents one Army =P)

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;

namespace Settlers.Battle
    class Squad
        public float numericalStrenght;
        public float effectiveness;

The simulator class:

There are some static methods that can be used to discover the winner before the “Battle begin =P” (without explicitelly using the time variable. See the recomended papers to know the reason why we can do this)

using System.Collections.Generic;

            for (int i = 0; i < a1.Count(); i++)
                apower += a1[i].effectiveness * a1[i].numericalStrenght;

    If you’re taking suggestions, I would like to own a Michael Ruhlman special tome on stock making. I know you cover this in your other books, but I think a more exhaustive account of stock making would be seriously appreciated.Now I’m going away to order Walk on Water.

    Ellie you’re in great hands with Mike, when the time comes I would also love to join into the conversation. For now you and Mike get to know each other and one of these days when I am in Chicago maybe we can grab a coffee or even some of that “booze” from Columbus you tweeted about earlier today.

    Buenos días Rafa,Lo más cínico de todo es que estas victimas inocentes lo consideran ellos “daños colaterales”, tampoco podemos olvidar que debido a los componentes de las armas utilizadas en la primera guerra del golfo siguen muriendo de cáncer mucha gente, y que hay niños que nacen con malformaciones, no se poner enlaces en comentarios pero hay una Web: DU Babies , que es dura, muy dura de mirar…Un beso Rafa.

    This sword is very nice and sharp, it is so sharp that I cut through six cans of tea in the same time! It is worth it and always remember to keep it oiled because it will rust other than that is is a very beautiful piece of art I highly recommend this katana
