Abstract : The Center for Naval Analyses Computer War Game, SEALIFT, is a Monte-Carlo simulation designed to help study sealift capabilities in an ASW environment. A mathematical model of the SEALIFT game is posited to obtain expected value results approximating those of the SEALIFT game. The model is cast in the Fortran terminology of SEALIFT and an effort is made to accurately reflect the SEALIFT flow chart logic in its development. Comparisons with SEALIFT results to determine the model's reliability and accuracy are not made. (Author)
