Weighted Generalised Directed-Divergence Measure to Assess Military Requirements
AbstractIn the present p~per, a weighted infonnation theoretic measure has been used to compare and assess the military requirements of a country wrt other countries to meet the challenge of future battles. A measure of weighted directed-divergence based on m probability distributions has been proposed and a probability distribution 'closest' to these m probability distributions is obtained. The closest probability distribution provides a reasonably adequate measure and thus enables one to apply this
technique in real life situation, viz., assessment of balanced military requirements for a country: consensus ranking, pattern recognition, etc.
