Has anyone come across any paper on Tug Of War? I tried searching for it online but couldn't find anything. If anyone here has any sources, can you please share?

Regards

  • $\begingroup$ And a couple of older papers: Murzov, N. V. The solution of some dynamic tug-of-war and pursuit games. (Russian) Litovsk. Mat. Sb. 7 1967 119–127. Petrosjan, L. A.; Murzov, N. V.

    $\begingroup$ But maybe you're really interested in the physics of tug of war, in which case I can recommend what-if.xkcd.com/127 $\endgroup$ – Gerry Myerson Jan 27 '17 at 6:22
  • $\begingroup$ Thanks a lot. Also, on a lighter note, if you got all these from a simple google search...i should give up everything else and start working on my google skills. :-) $\endgroup$ – nimbus3000 Jan 27 '17 at 6:29

    $\begingroup$ Voting to reopen. It's essentially a reference request (I added that tag), so I'm not sure the "missing context" complaint is relevant. $\endgroup$ – Gerry Myerson Jan 28 '17 at 22:55

I was sort-of joking when I mentioned this xkcd what-if essay in the comments, but in fact there's a fair bit of mathematics there, as well as some links to the literature on tug of war.
