Abstract : The vulnerability/Iethality (VL) process structure is an attempt to bring mathematical formalism to VL analysis and place it on a more scientific foundation. A key point of the mathematics in the process structure is the basis it will provide for future work. This report will develop the mathematics of the VL process structure and present applications which demonstrate the utility of this mathematical formalism in solving some classical VL analysis WoblerriL
