Expected value calculations figure prominently in the work of many deterrence theorists, yet the application of this methodology in nonfinancial situations can be suspect. This paper reviews conventional expected value calculations and suggests that the use of boundary conditions, such as the concept of negative infinity, more closely approximates real world decisionmaking. Finally, the paper inje......

The present study deals with some of the peculiar and historically novel requirements of a deterrence posture.
