Response times : their role in inferring elementary mental organization
by
R. Duncan Luce(
Book
)
19 editions published between 1986 and 2007 in English and held by 783 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Response times are a fascinating source of information on how the mind is organized  the time taken to carry out an action tells us something about the choice process involved. This is a critical but evenhanded treatment of the major themes of how response times play a role in our thinking about the mind. Professor Luce provides a comprehensive, clear review of the experimental data, and puts forward the idea of the hazard function  a novel and important approach that he and his colleagues have developed. This function, based on the probability that an reaction is about to occur given that no reaction has occurred so far during a trial, exaggerates the differences that normal analysis methods often obscure. This enables the researcher to rule out more confidently known mechanisms of time delay in human performance. Since measurements of response times are widely used by experimental psychologists as one approach to distinguishing between theories of intellectual functioning, the conceptual arguments that Professor Luce brings to bear on mathematical models of response time are of great relevance to mathematical and experimental psychologists

Individual choice behavior; a theoretical analysis

R. Duncan Luce(

)
22 editions published between 1959 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 692 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This Influential treatise presents upperlevel undergraduates and graduate students with a mathematical analysis of choice behavior. It begins with the statement of a general axiom upon which the rest of the book rests; the following three chapters, which may be read independently of each other, are devoted to applications of the theory to substantive problems: psychophysics, utility, and learning. Applications to psychophysics include considerations of time and spaceorder effects, the Fechnerian assumption, the power law and its relation to discrimination data, interaction of continua, discrimined processes, signal detectability theory, and rethinking of stimulus. The next major theme, utility theory, features unusual results that suggest an experiment to test the theory. The fined chapters explore learningrelated topics, analyzing the stochastic theories of learning as the basic approachwith the exception that distributions of response strengths are assumed to be transformed rather than response probabilities. The author arrives at three classes of learning operators, both linear and nonlinear, and the text concludes with a useful series of appendixes"Cover.

Sound & hearing : a conceptual introduction

R. Duncan Luce(
Book
)
12 editions published between 1993 and 2013 in English and held by 366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The major aim of this book is to introduce the ways in which scientists approach and think about a phenomenon  hearing  that intersects three quite different disciplines: the physics of sound sources and the propagation of sound through air and other materials, the anatomy and physiology of the transformation of the physical sound into neural activity in the brain, and the psychology of the perception we call hearing. Physics, biology, and psychology each play a role in understanding how and what we hear. The text evolved over the past decade in an attempt to convey something about scien

Geometric representations of perceptual phenomena : papers in honor of Tarow Indow on his 70th birthday

R. Duncan Luce(
Book
)
11 editions published between 1995 and 2013 in English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Based on a conference held in honor of Professor Tarow Indow, this volume is organized into three major topics concerning the use of geometry in perception: * space  referring to attempts to represent the subjective space within which we locate ourselves and perceive objects to reside; * color  dealing with attempts to represent the structure of color percepts as revealed by various experimental procedures; and * scaling  focusing on the organization of various bodies of data  in this case perceptual  through scaling techniques, primarily multidimensional ones. <b
