Tactics for Evacuating from an Affected Area

Qi Wei, Lijuan Wang, and Bo Jiang

Abstract—This paper considers the problem faced by a group of evacuees must leave from an affected area as quickly as possible. We seek efficient tactics that achieve a bounded ratio of evacuation time without boundary information to that with. Specially, evacuees can communicate with each other during the evacuation. In this paper, we restrict the affected area to a convex region in the plane. We analyze this problem in two scenarios: general plane and plane in grid network. In these two scenarios, we present new efficient tactics and analyze the evacuate ratio of tactics, respectively.

Index Terms—Evacuation tactic, ratio, convex region, grid network.
