Unfortunately, the threshold lies quite high, indeed nearer to the yield from attacking the US ( 54) than countries such as France ( 6:8), implying that it would be necessary to create a very large deterrence effect to reduce the number of plots. If this level of deterrence is somehow achieved, the reduction in attacks will not occur at once in all countries because cells in some countries have lower translocation costs than cells in other countries.

Mathematical Methods in Counterterrorism, pp. 205–214. J. Bourassa Abstract Attention is the critical resource for intelligence analysts, so tools that provide focus are useful. One way to determine focus is by computing significance. In the context of a known model, new data can be placed on a spectrum defined by: normal, anomalous, interesting, novel, or random; and significance is greatest towards the middle of this spectrum. However, significance also depends on the mental state of the analyst (and the organization).
