Measurement theory with applications to decisionmaking, utility, and the social sciences by
Fred S Roberts(
Book
)
43 editions published between 1979 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 675 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book provides an introduction to measurement theory for nonspecialists and puts measurement in the social and behavioural sciences on a firm mathematical foundation. Results are applied to such topics as measurement of utility, psychophysical scaling and decisionmaking about pollution, energy, transportation and health. The results and questions presented should be of interest to both students and practising mathematicians since the author sets forth an area of mathematics unfamiliar to most mathematicians, but which has many potentially significant applications

Applications of combinatorics and graph theory to the biological and social sciences by
Fred S Roberts(
Book
)
17 editions published between 1989 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume is the Proceedings of a Workshop on the applications of Combinatorics and graph theory in the biological and social sciences, held at the Institute for Mathematics and its Applications in January 1988. Combinatorial and graphtheoretical methods are increasingly important in the biological and social sciences. The Workshop emphasized mathematical techniques and open problems arising in such fields as ecology, genetics, enzyme kinetics, economics, political science, sociology, and psychology

Discrete and system models(
Book
)
13 editions published between 1976 and 1983 in English and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The purpose of this four volume series is to make available for college teachers and students samples of important and realistic applications of mathematics which can be covered in undergraduate programs. The goal is to provide illustrations of how modem mathematics is actually employed to solve relevant contemporary problems. Although these independent chapters were prepared primarily for teachers in the general mathematical sciences, they should prove valuable to students, teachers, and research scientists in many of the fields of application as well. Prerequisites for each chapter and suggestions for the teacher are provided. Several of these chapters have been tested in a variety of classroom settings, and all have undergone extensive peer review and revision. Illustrations and exercises be covered in one class, are included in most chapters. Some units can whereas others provide sufficient material for a few weeks of class time. Volume 1 contains 23 chapters and deals with differential equations and, in the last four chapters, problems leading to partial differential equations. Applications are taken from medicine, biology, traffic systems and several other fields. The 14 chapters in Volume 2 are devoted mostly to problems arising in political science, but they also address questions appearing in sociology and ecology. Topics covered include voting systems, weighted voting, proportional representation, coalitional values, and committees. The 14 chapters in Volume 3 emphasize discrete mathematical methods such as those which arise in graph theory, combinatorics, and networks

Recent progress in mathematical psychology by
Cornelia E Dowling(
Book
)
12 editions published between 1997 and 2014 in English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Mathematical psychology is an interdisciplinary area of research in which methods of mathematics, operations research, and computer science in psychology are used. Now more than thirty years old, the field has continued to grow rapidly and has taken on a life of its own. This volume summarizes recent progress in mathematical psychology as seen by some of the leading figures in the field as well as some of its leading young researchers. The papers presented in this volume reflect the most important current directions of research in mathematical psychology. They cover topics in measure
