Abstract

Kovenock and Roberson’s (2010) paper has the potential to advance the research frontier, but has deficiencies. This paper suggests how Kovenock and Roberson’s (2010) paper can be developed into a more substantial paper. Kovenock and Roberson’s (2010) paper consists of three sections. The first section is an introduction which is OK but has no results. The second section, titled “Model and Main Result”, provides no contribution beyond Hausken (2008a). It consists of equations (1)-(10) which are equivalent to equations developed by Hausken (2008a), and equation (11) which is equivalent to the requirement u≥0 and U≥0 provided after equation (17) in Hausken (2008a). The third section quotes Hausken (2008a) once in one sentence which means that section 3 does not belong as a comment on the paper written by Hausken (2008a). The authors are encouraged to develop a new paper based on many interesting ideas in this note. The new paper should develop further the idea of mixed strategies presented in section 3. The new paper may be titled: “Strategic Defense and Attack for Series and Parallel Reliability Systems when Allowing Mixed Strategies”.
