Estimation of Damage Preference From Strike Parameters

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Estimation of an opponent's damage preference is illustrated by discussing the sensitivity of stability indices and strike parameters to it and inverting the results to study the sensitivity of estimates to uncertainties in strikes. Costs and stability indices do not generally have the monotonicity and sensitivity needed to support accurate estimation. First and second strikes do. Second strikes also have proportionality, although they are not unambiguously interpretable. First strikes are observable and have the greatest overall power for estimation, whether linear or numerical solutions are used.
