Title: PrEP: Probability of Encounter between Ports of Entry A case study of the US-Mexico border

Abstract

PrEP aims to explore the field of psychophysics as it applies to the movement of adversaries across international borders. This test experiment uses the US-Mexico border as a case study – beginning with certain assumptions regarding the adversary, the model utilizes environmental and population data to estimate risk perception, and predict routes that a smuggler may take. Additionally, I analyze the impact that destination-based attractive forces may have on agent movement. I found that these attractive forces may improve the validity of the model if they carry less influence that the repulsive forces.
