Course Description This course will cover several technical approaches for understanding and analyzing key subjects in military affairs.  Methodologies range from simple quantitative tools for understanding combat to defense budget calculations to primers on military technology.  None require elaborate prerequisites!  The course will address these subjects: the defense budget; models and simulations of combat; subjects in military technology such as WMD, missile defense, and cybersecurity; military basing, transport, supply, and logistics. The course is not built around the current policy debate; the focus will be on methodologies of more general application. That said, case studies will often examine contemporary issues, primarily but not exclusively those involving the United States.
