Introduction to Crime Analysis and Mapping By Jeffrey Strickland
Paperback: List Price: $23.99 $21.59 | You Save: 10%
Prints in 3-5 business days
Crime analysis is both a profession and a set of techniques. The professionals who perform crime analysis, and the techniques they use, are dedicated to helping a police department become more... More > effective through better information. Crime mapping is used by analysts in law enforcement agencies to map, visualize, and analyze crime incident patterns. It is a key component of crime analysis and the CompStat policing strategy. Mapping crime, using Geographic Information Systems (GIS), allows crime analysts to identify crime hot spots, along with other trends and patterns. This book focuses mostly on crime analysis mapping, but includes a discussion of predictive modeling, a special handling of modeling terrorism, and appendices which include a review of probability and statistics and possible board questions. The book is not intended to be all inclusive, nor does it handle the subjects in depth. Rather, it is more of a “survey” of a few crime analysis topics that are dealt with more rigorously by other authors.< Less
Handbook of Handguns By Jeffrey Strickland

In light of the 2nd Amendment debates, shooting may become the national passtime. To act responsibly within the 2nd Amendment, means knowing how to properly "bear arms". Knowing involves... More > understanding firearm types, firearm operation, ammunition, internal ballistics, and shooting. These require training, especially shooting. Whether you own or plan to own a handgun for recreation, competition, or self-defense, training is of the utmost importance. When you fire a projectile (bullet) from a firearm, you are responsible for where it goes. You need to understand how fast it travels, how far it can travel, and how accurate your firearm is in delivering the projectile to your intended target. Yes, bearing arms is a right, but not one to be taken lightly. Firing a handgun is a grave responsibility and must be done correctly and with a full understanding of all the components that make up "shooting".< Less
Verification and Validation for Modeling and Simulation By Jeffrey Strickland
Paperback: List Price: $34.50 $25.88 | You Save: 25%
Prints in 3-5 business days
This work began when I was appointed as a Technical Director for Modeling and Simulation (M&S) Verification and Validation (V&V) for a major defense system in 2008. It is intended to provide... More > the nuts and bolts of performing M&S V&V in one volume. It is not intended to provide a holistic approach to M&S V&V, as that can be derived from other sources. As such, this book assumes a basic understanding of V&V, including its place in the lifecycle, its purpose and its scope for ensuring the quality of models and simulations. During the process of developing this text, the Simulation Interoperability Standards Organization (SISO) completed SISO-GUIDE-001.2-2013, Guide for Generic Methodology for Verification and Validation (GM-VV) to Support Acceptance of Models, Simulations, and Data, 2 Volumes, June 2013. The guide does serve the purpose not covered by this book. This text provides procedural details for performing V&V. The procedures are static, dynamic and informal.< Less
Using Math to Defeat the Enemy: Combat Modeling for Simulation By Jeffrey Strickland
eBook (PDF): $20.00
This book was written for the 2nd Annual Modeling and Simulation Summit, Pre-Conference Focus Day Workshop: Using Math to Defeat the Enemy: Combat Modeling for Simulation (Monday, August 29th... More > 2011). Although mathematics is key to combat model for simulation, this book provides just a cursory survey of mathematical model, and includes heuristics and other algorithms. The book covers behavior models, environmental models, communication models, target detection models, attrition model, entity and aggregate level models, and multi-resolution models. It provides examples of past and current model, simulations, and wargames to stimulate learning and discussion.< Less
Mathematical Modeling of Warfare and Combat Phenomenon By Jeffrey Strickland

Prints in 3-5 business days
The primary goal of this book is to assist the student to develop the skills necessary to effectively employ the ideas of mathematics to solve military problems. At the simplest level I seek to... More > promote an understanding of why mathematics is useful as a language for characterizing the interaction and relationships among quantifiable concepts, or in mathematical terms, variables. The text explores models of terrorism, attrition, search, detection, missile defense, radar, and operational reliability Throughout the text I emphasize the notion of added value and why it is the driving force behind military mathematical modeling. For a given mathematical model to be deemed a success something must be learned that was not obvious without the modeling procedure. Very often added value comes in the form of a prediction. In the absence of added value the modeling procedure becomes an exercise not unrelated to digging a ditch simply to fill it back up again.< Less
Fundamentals of Combat Modeling By Jeffrey Strickland

This text presents various military applications of mathematical modeling in one reference source. The book can be used as either a desk reference or as a textbook for a course in mathematical... More > modeling. The text features mathematical modeling of combat phenomena, including physical models of attrition for passive targets, deterministic homogeneous and heterogeneous models of combat attrition, Stochastic models of combat attrition, models of search and detection, strategic and theater missile defense models, and models of operational reliability and availability. Mathematical applications include differentiation, integration, solution of differential equations, probability and statistics, and finite difference equations. Solutions are presented both analytically and numerically using Microsoft Excel® All Excel® spreadsheets used to create the graphs and solutions in the text can be downloaded at the author’s website www.simulation-educators.com/downloads.html.< Less
Systems Engineering Processes and Practice By Jeffrey Strickland

Earlier chapters present an overview of the Systems Engineering Processes; the Technical processes, Project processes, and Organizational (Enterprise) processes; Life-Cycle Stages; Enabling Systems Engineering processes; Systems Engineering Support Activities; Specialty Engineering Activities; and SE processes Tailoring. Later chapters describe the Systems Engineering Processes and Practice including Standard SE processes; the Stakeholder Requirements Definition Process; the Requirements Definition Process; the Logical Decomposition Process and Functional Analysis and Allocation; the Systems Architecture Process; and the Trade Study Process.< Less
Discrete Event Simulation using ExtendSim 8 By Jeffrey Strickland

This... More > book is intended to be a blend of theory and application, presenting just enough theory to understand how to build a model, design a simulation experiment, and analyze the results. Most of the text is devoted to building models with ExtendSim 8, starting with a simple single-server queue and culminating with a transportation depot for package transfer and delivery. I have built all the models contained in this book with ExtendSim 8 LT, which limits the number of modeling blocks, but otherwise has the required ExtendSim 8 capabilities. ExtendSim 8 LT is not included in this book. Students may obtain ExtendSim 8 LT from Imagine That, Inc. at www.extendsim.com/ store/cart.php?target=category&category_id=3.

Missile Flight Simulation By Jeffrey Strickland
Hardcover: List Price: $56.91 $42.68 | You Save: 25%
Prints in 3-5 business days
A missile flight simulation is a computational tool that calculates the flight of a missile from launch until it engages the target. The simulation is based on mathematical models of the missile,... More > target and environment. This book provides instruction for the preparation of these mathematical models to simulate the flight of a surface-to-air missile. The 2nd Edition of Missile Flight Simulation provides updated simulation processes using MATLAB® and Simulink™, while improving and clarifying previous content. The book may be used as a reference or as a textbook, although it is devoid of exercises. However, the reader is encouraged to perform the simulation of Charter 12 using MATLAB® and Simulink™, or a programming language such as FORTRAN (see Chapter 10). The book is not intended to be a missile flight engineering reference and does not contain every aspect of missile flight. It provides the appropriate content for simulating missile flight from launch to terminus only.< Less
