Wars are a common part of today’s world. It is the sole reason for all the weapons and the progress that we have made. However, they are incredibly damaging and taxing to take part in. War is devastating; many races die, and many land areas are scarred and are unable to recover from damages caused by warfare. Many organizations and groups have combined their effort to put an end to future wars and battles, but their efforts could not determine how to predict and let alone stop them from occurring. A solution to this devastating issue is mathematics.

Mathematics is a part of everything. You can see it in the way that plants and acorns are structured. You can see the pattern that links directly to mathematics in the way that things are formed. It can also be used to explain human activities and emotions. Surprisingly, a genius known as Sean Gourley, a Physicist found that mathematics can be used to explain wars and predict any futures ones as well. Not only does this equation perfectly display past wars and battles, but it is also rumored to have been able to predict future warfare successfully. The way that this equation works is that it determines the trend in warfare and utilizes it to predict war successfully. One of the fascinating parts of the equation was that it was created for a different purpose. The purpose of this newly introduced equation was to collect information and news from multiple sources and store it in a system; it was then later discovered by Sean’s team that the equation predicted past and present battle and warfare, through a simple pattern that was constant. The study conducted in the aftermath of this discovery showed that wars follow the same trend and pattern.

During his fight to find more information and evidence to support his mathematical equation and the pattern of war that was uncovered, Gourley found many schools and academies contradicting his theories and placed heavy friction against him and his work, delaying him further. The data that Gourley had connected and gathered looked almost like random data. That was until officials applied it to Iraq. The comparison was extraordinarily accurate and predicted the descending slope in the data when plotted on a logarithmic scale. Soon they compared the equation to every battle and every war in documented history and found that they matched up exactly to the equation.

The equation in itself is straightforward and doesn’t require much thought. P(x)=Cx^{-α}. Each part of the equation shows and predicts a different piece of information. The ‘P’ stands for the probability of the event occurring, the ‘X’ stands for the casualties, The ‘C’ is a consonant, and the ‘a’ represents the slope in which the trend is based upon. As amazing and accurate that is mathematical equation is, it is unfortunately not yet used to its full extent, as it is not utilized in the military. The 2.5 slopes of the trend are considered a key element to the success of this equation. The slope displayed in the data shows a different range of actions that will most likely happen. A slope higher than 2.5 will show that the insurgents will be pushed away and will be weaker, whereas if it is lower than 2.5, then the group will grow closer but will make them more capable of being quickly defeated.
