Firefighting as a Game [chapter]

Carme Àlvarez, Maria J. Blesa, Hendrik Molter
2014 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We model the Firefighter Problem as a strategic game where there is one player for each time step who decides where to place the firefighters.  ...  The Firefighter Problem was proposed in 1995 [16] as a deterministic discrete-time model for the spread (and containment) of a fire.  ...  As it turns out, the respective games are equivalent. a) Selfish Firefighters. In this model, firefighters get paid for the nodes they save. We call this game G (Selfish) .  ...

Firefighting as a Strategic Game

Carme Álvarez, Maria J. Blesa, Hendrik Molter
2015 Internet Mathematics  
We refer to it as the Firefighter Game.  ...  The Firefighter Problem was proposed in 1995 as a deterministic discrete-time model for the spread and containment of a fire.  ...  Our proposal as a possible set of solutions to the Firefighter Problem corresponds to the set of Nash equilibria of a new strategic game that we call the Firefighter Game.  ...

Triple Hop for Distance as a Predictor of Lower Extremity Performance in Firefighter Equipment

Sean M Rogers, Zachary K Winkelmann, Lindsey E Ebermann, Kenneth E Games
2019 International Journal of Exercise Science  
The THD was found to be a strong and valid predictor for clinical measures of LE power and strength in firefighter PPE.  ...  Thirty-one healthy participants completed the THD in firefighter PPE on both the dominant and non-dominant limb.  ...  None of the participants reported any experience or formal training as a firefighter.  ...

Firefighting with a Distance-Based Restriction [article]

Andrea Burgess, John Marcoux, David Pike
2022 arXiv   pre-print
In the classic version of the game of firefighter, on the first turn a fire breaks out on a vertex in a graph G and then k firefighters protect k vertices.  ...  A common objective with respect to some infinite graph G is to determine how many firefighters are necessary to stop the fire from spreading after a finite number of turns, commonly referred to as containing  ...  game as well.  ...

The Pyro game: a slow intelligent fire [article]

Margaret-Ellen Messinger, Spencer Yarnell
2021 arXiv   pre-print
We show, that unlike the Firefighter problem, one firefighter can contain a fire on the Cartesian grid in the Pyro game.  ...  The problem can be thought of as a simplified model for the spread of gossip or disease in a network.  ...  With optimal play, the square-eater player wins the game of Quadraphage with q = 1 on a board as small as 33 × 33; the proof was shown in [1] and nicely explained in [12] .  ...

Using PhysX Simulation Fire Model of Backdraft in Unity 3D Game Engine

Yongzhe Xu, Eunju Kim, Kyunjoo Lee, Jaesug Ki, Byungsoo Lee
2014 International Journal of Multimedia and Ubiquitous Engineering  
When firefighters discover and search a building fire survivor pulling air into itself, they generally evacuate immediately, because this is a strong indication that a backdraft is imminent.  ...  The most common tactic used by firefighters to defuse a potential backdraft is to ventilate a room from its highest point, allowing the heat and smoke to escape without igniting explosively.  ...  A backdraft would be classified as a chemical explosion.  ...

Firefighting on Trees [article]

Pierre Coupechoux, Marc Demange, David Ellison, Bertrand Jouve
2019 arXiv   pre-print
In this paper, we focus on the case of trees and we consider as well the Fractional Firefighter game where the amount of protection allocated to a vertex lies between 0 and 1.  ...  To this aim, we study a new purely numerical game called targeting game.  ...  This set-up can be seen as a game between the online player (or algorithm) and an oblivious adversary.  ...

A Dynamic Platform for Developing 3D Facial Avatars in a Networked Virtual Environment

Anis Zarrad
2016 International Journal of Computer Games Technology  
To minimize use of the game engine, we introduced script-based component where the user introduces simple short script fragments to feed the engine with a new animation on the fly.  ...  During runtime, when an embedded animation is required, an xml file is created and injected into the game engine without stopping or restarting the engine.  ...  We describe our game scenario as a nonlinear story using state machine concepts.  ...
