Scientists have calculated the size of the army, able to protect the world from zombies

If protecting civilians from zombies to be the military, then they should be not less than 47 persons per 1000 persons of the civilian population. But better to take defense into their own hands, tell the Brazilian mathematics to simulate a zombie Apocalypse.

A group of scientists from the University of the state of Minas Gerais in Brazil has posted an article “Modeling human survival in case of zombie Apocalypse” (Modeling our survival in a zombie apocalypse).

Scientists have developed the dynamic model suggests that in the case of a mass zombie uprising, the civilian population will be protected by the military. The ratio of the number of armed soldiers and civilians was a key factor in the sustainability of the human community, forced to fight with reanimated corpses. If a thousand civilians have less than 47 military, survival will be threatened.

If a zombie Apocalypse today, the call to be answered only North Korea — it has just 4.7 percent of the population are in the armed forces.

Even with the staff of the FSO and the private security industry and without the deduction of the staff of power structures, the percentage of armed and trained people in Russia barely to 3.9, analysts telegram-channel “Herring on a fur coat.”

The basis scientists took a scenario where the first zombie appears in a densely populated metropolis. When contacted healthy people turn into zombies, their number is growing rapidly, and the situation soon becomes apocalyptic in nature. Scientists relied mainly on cinematic material; according to these sources, mankind quickly finds himself in the minority and forced to live in isolated groups in fortified settlements.

Were made the following assumptions: when meeting with a zombie is a peaceful man kills zombie, zombie kills a man or a man turns into a zombie (for simplicity, scientists have made these scenarios are mutually exclusive). When meeting with military zombies killed, because the military has weapons and special training. Changing the probability of different outcomes, scientists have developed a model describing four situations: 1) the population protects a Strong Army 2) the population protects the Very Strong Army 3) the population protects itself (the Resistance), but people are more prepared and survive more often than in previous scenarios. In the fourth scenario, the survival rate has increased from the zombies. Nothing good this model is not promises: strong zombies kill a lot of people, but zombifitziert little; in the end, the living are just the military. Best work is still the option of “Resistance”: in this case, a zombie from the start had no chance.
