Range-Limited Pursuit-Evasion


In pursuit-evasion the objective of the pursuer is to capture the evader. In this work, the faster pursuer is modeled to have limited range and therefore optimal strategies for the pursuer and evader change. Depending upon the range limits of the pursuer the evader may evade capture by the pursuer. This paper describes the optimal strategies and nuances that appear for point-capture or when the pursuer is endowed with a non-zero capture radius.
