In science:

The transmitter and jammer may increase their transmission and jamming powers over any frame from P to PM , and from J to JM , respectively.
Jamming in Fixed-Rate Wireless Systems with Power Constraints - Part I: Fast Fading Channels
Under the minimax solution of pure strategies, the jammer only needs to detect the presence of the transmitter (the optimal strategies are of ON/OFF type) to have complete information about the transmitter’s behavior.
Jamming in Fixed-Rate Wireless Systems with Power Constraints - Part I: Fast Fading Channels
However, if the transmitter chose to use mixed strategies, a complete characterization of its behavior would require not only knowledge about its presence, but also about the power it decided to allocate to that frame.
Jamming in Fixed-Rate Wireless Systems with Power Constraints - Part I: Fast Fading Channels
PM and JM are de fined as in (1), (2), the expectation is taken over all fr ames with respect to the power allocation strategies introduced by the transmitter and jammer, and P and J are the upper-bounds on average transmission power of the source and jammer, respectively.
