Game with Two Pursuers and One Evader: Case of Weak Pursuers
This paper deals with a zero-sum differential game, in which the first player controls two pursuing objects, whose aim is to minimize the minimum of the misses between each of them and the evader at some given instant. The case is studied when the pursuers have equal dynamic capabilities, but are less powerful than the evader. The first player’s control based on its switching lines is analyzed. Results of numeric application of this control are given.
