AN INTERCEPTION PROBLEM

C. Stanley Ogilvy

Peer Reviewed

Abstract: We investigate some aspects of a simple interception problem: what course should a ship steer in order to meet a second ship in the least possible time? The courses of both ships are to be straight; and except where otherwise noted the first ship (the pursuer) is assumed to be faster than the fugitive, but both are to maintain constant speeds.
