Applications of Lanchester's Square Law

Lanchester's square law models a battle between two armies using a pair of differential equations based on a set of fixed positive constants: the kill rate of good soldiers and the kill rate of poor soldiers. The square law assumes the rate of attrition for one army is solely based on the population and strength of the other army's soldiers, that there is no crossfire where two opposing troops kill each other at the same time and every shot kills only one soldier.
