Summary:
Here we discuss how Kolmogorov's work on turbulence can be used as the inspiration for a new description of battlefield dynamics. The method presented may also represent a new way of describing self-organizing dynamical systems, in place of conventional differential equation approaches. The key finding is that the rate of attrition in a battle appears to be a function of the fractal dimension of the opposing forces.  Read more...

Abstract:

Here we discuss how Kolmogorov's work on turbulence can be used as the inspiration for a new description of battlefield dynamics. The method presented may also represent a new way of describing self-organizing dynamical systems, in place of conventional differential equation approaches. The key finding is that the rate of attrition in a battle appears to be a function of the fractal dimension of the opposing forces. It is suggested that, this being the case, the fractal dimension could be used as a surrogate to represent the organizational efficiency of one force relative to another, commonly called Command and Control.
