Abstract

This paper introduces a new mathematical methodology suitable for the modelling and simulation of conflict phenomena. While methodologies already exist in this area of study, they have a number of limitations which make them unsuitable as general formulations, particularly in explaining or for simulating real situations. Some deal with only static phenomena - those in which time is not a factor of consideration, others are confined to their own small fields of study, yet others do not cater adequately for any numbers of interactive actors, or tend to be restrictive in their modelling flexibility. This approach ultimately uses a Weibull distribution to stochastically model dynamic processes

Keywords: Mathematical modelling, conflict, weibull distribution, stochastic dynamic processes
