About the Author

ANDREAS TOLK, PhD, is Professor in the Department of Engineering Management and Systems Engineering at Old Dominion University. He supported the development of the discipline of modeling and simulation with his publications for a variety of modeling and simulation conferences as well as his contributions to various NATO research activities in the domains of combat modeling, command and control, and studies and analysis.


Tolk and his coauthors have extensive experience in thisarea, making this volume a standard reference for researchersengaged in combat modeling. The complexity of the domain, theconsequences of error, and the prohibitive cost of directexperimentation are as great in combat modeling as in any otherproblem area, making this volume a valuable source of examples andtechniques for modelers in other areas that are highly complex,consequential, and inaccessible by direct experiment."
