Analysis, assessment, and data management are core tools required for operation research analysts. The April 2011 conference held at the Helenic Army Academy addressed these topics with efforts to collect valuable recommendations for improving analysts’ capabilities to assess and communicate necessary qualitative data to military leaders. This unique volume is comprised of contributions from the fields of science, mathematics, and the military, and includes a foreword written by the general manager of the NATO Consultation Command and Control Agency (NC3A). This work will be of interest to a diverse audience including military operations research analysts, the military community at large, and practitioners working with mathematical methods and applications to informatics and military science. Applications of Mathematics and Informatics in Military Science covers a wide variety of mathematical methods used with application to defense and security. Each contribution considers directions and pursuits of scientists that pertain to the military as well as the theoretical background required for methods, algorithms, and techniques used in military applications. The direction of theoretical results in these applications is conveyed and open problems and future areas of focus are highlighted. Topics covered include: applied OR and military applications, signal processing, scattering, scientific computing and applications, combat simulation and statistical modeling, satellite remote sensing, and applied informatics (cryptography and coding).
