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)

    Definitely believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the net the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people consider worries that they plainly do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

Your weblog is terrific visually, I mean people wont be bored. But others who can see past the videos and the layout wont be so impressed with your generic understanding of this topic.

It would always be stimulating to learn content material from different writers and practice a bit one thing from their store. I’d choose to make use of some with the content material on my weblog whether or not you don’t mind. Natually I’ll provide you with a link on your web blog. Thanks for sharing.
