Paper Abstract

The Linguistic Geometry (LG) approach provides theoretical foundations of the Effects Based Operations (EBO) such as cascade effects, centers of gravity (COG), effect inference, etc. This approach is based on the concept of LG hypergames. The first prototype of LG hypergame, LG-EBO, developed in 2001, demonstrated an LG-inference of direct and indirect effects from distant causes as well as reverse inference of minimal list of causes from the desired effects. In addition, LG-EBO was the first LG prototype capable of demonstrating deceptive tactics for both sides of a conflict. In this paper we further develop our approach to EBO by giving a comprehensive description of LG approach to EBO including theory and applications.
