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)

    Hence when i requested it i thought information technology had been going to be letter awesome then again inexpensively manufactured bracelet ideal towards stocking stuffers. However it is prepared beautifully as well as is actually thick hence it really is not really synthetic or even quickly broken metal. My mother liked information technology. It is a little on the mini side when you posses a larger wrist i wouldnt encourage things however it is therefore worth that the discount amount!!

    This really is actually very. I love it plenty. Their quote are sweet furthermore container covered as part of wonderful bow.
