Richardson Arms Race Model

So I'm doing a project for my diff eqs final on the Richardson Arms Race system of differential equations. I honestly never thought I would remember how to find an eigenvalue or eigenvector after linear algebra, but it is all coming back. Has anybody ever dealt with this model in an economics class? I really like these sorts of things and I wonder if it would be a good undergraduate research paper, since it would have plenty of theory.

Hey, I've never heard of that model. However, when I took Diff Eq, the project I did before the end of the quarter was on the Homocidal Chauffer game over a discrete field that Rufus Isaacs came up with. I think you should check it out, its in a book called "Differential Games." I purchased it for that project, I havn't read to much of it since then. Once all my midterms are over with, I'm probably going to start reading it again, check it out :-p

It sounds interesting, do you have any links where I can read about it?
