Abstract : This report gives a brief introduction to the Lanchester theory, which is a mathematical description of the course and outcome of battle with several participants on either side. Thus we present a history of the development of the theory in the United States and Western Europe (with a separate section about Sweden) as well as in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. For each geogra phical area we mention the institutes and individual scientists who have had the most impact on the development of Lanchester theory. The bibliography as such comprises some 700 references and is found in Appendix A, which also contains lists of abbreviations, magazines which have been searched, institutes and universities, publishers etc. In Appendix B the references are classified according to application or mathematical approach. They are also classified as to issuing institute or agency.
