Broadly a differential game is one in which, as the action progresses, both the environment and the decisions available to the players are subject to a consistent, logical law, so that the problem is amenable to mathematical analysis. Usually the action is continuous and solutions can actually be obtained for a wide range of problems of extended conflict between two antagonists. The applications include various models of battles, pursuit and evasion games, dogfights, and other contests of maneuvering, such as football, and some aiming and evasion problems. By allowing one player to be passive, certain programming procedures can be optimized. A chapter is devoted to collision avoidance, in which the players cooperate rather than conflict. In what are termed games of degree the players respectively seek to maximize and minimize some numerically valued payoff. In games of kind the criterion is sharp, such as whether or not capture will occur in a pursuit situation. The two types have separate but related theories. The text concludes with chapters on the case of incomplete information and the practical aspects of applications to warfare. (Author)

Transtability flutter of supersonic aircraft panels by Rufus Isaacs( Book )

2 editions published in 1949 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A beam is clamped at the ends. The ends have been forced toward one another before clamping so that the beam is buckled slightly. One face of the beam is exposed to a supersonic air stream flowing parallel to the beam whose effect is a pressure negatively proportional to the inclination of the beam. The practical prototype of this model which was used to study transtability flutter is a panel in the structure of a supersonic aircraft
