Kurzfassung englisch:
Abstract: E ective counter-terroristic operations require e cient intelligence. Recently, Kress
and Szechtmann (2009) analyzed the impact of the level of intelligence to the outcome of a ght
between the government and a small insurgent group in a descriptive, asymmetric Lanchester-
style model. The present paper uses optimal control theory, particularly Pontryagin's maximum
principle, to nd the optimal intelligence policy and recruitment rate of the government forces.
In particular, we intend to study multiple long-run steady states and complex behavior of the
optimal solution paths. Moreover, a di erential game between the government and the terrorist
is proposed.
