This book begins with a review of basic results in optimal search for a stationary target. It then develops the theory of optimal search for a moving target, providing algorithms for computing optimal plans and examples of their use. Next it develops methods for computing optimal search plans involving multiple targets and multiple searchers with realistic operational constraints on search movement. These results assume that the target does not react to the search. In the final chapter there is a brief overview of mostly military problems where the target tries to avoid being found as well as rescue or rendezvous problems where the target and the searcher cooperate. Larry Stone wrote his definitive book Theory of Optimal Search in 1975, dealing almost exclusively with the stationary target search problem. Since then the theory has advanced to encompass search for targets that move even as the search proceeds, and computers have developed sufficient capability to employ the improved theory. In this book, Stone joins Royset and Washburn to document and explain this expanded theory of search. The problem of how to search for moving targets arises every day in military, rescue, law enforcement, and border patrol operations.

Optimal Search for Moving Targets in Continuous Time and Space Using Consistent Approximations
  • Author : Joseph Carl Foraker
  • Publisher : Unknown
  • Release Date : 2011

We show how to formulate many continuous time-and-space search problems as generalized optimal control problems, where multiple searchers look for multiple targets. Speci cally, we formulate problems in which we minimize the probability that all of the searchers fail to detect any of the targets during the planning horizon, and

Probabilistic Search for Tracking Targets
  • Author : Irad Ben-Gal,Eugene Kagan
  • Publisher : John Wiley & Sons
  • Release Date : 2013-03-25

Presents a probabilistic and information-theoretic framework for a search for static or moving targets in discrete time and space. Probabilistic Search for Tracking Targets uses an information-theoretic scheme to present a unified approach for known search methods to allow the development of new algorithms of search. The book addresses search

Optimal Whereabouts Search for a Moving Target
  • Author : STANFORD UNIV CALIF DEPT OF STATISTICS.,L. D. Stone,J. B. Kadane
  • Publisher : Unknown
  • Release Date : 1979

This paper shows that solving the optimal whereabouts search problem for a moving target is equivalent to solving a finite number of optimal detection problems for moving targets. This generalizes the result of Kadane (5) for stationary targets. (Author).

Search for Moving Targets
  • Author : Anthony Paul Ciervo
  • Publisher : Unknown
  • Release Date : 1977

A fundamental problem in the theory of search involves the calculation of the probability of detection for searchers following known paths while attempting to detect a target whose motion is characterized statistically. The searchers' laws of detection and the target's initial distribution are given. Hellman has solved the problem when

Studies on the Optimal Search Plan
  • Author : Koji Iida
  • Publisher : Springer Science & Business Media
  • Release Date : 2012-12-06

Search theory is concerned with the location of a 'target' given imprecise information concerning its location. The subject has a variety of applications such as locating missing people in wilderness or at sea, searching for mineral deposits, medical diagnosis, and searching for malfunctions in industrial processes. This volume is concerned
