Utility of gains and losses : measurement- theoretical, and experimental approaches by R. Duncan Luce( )

14 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in English and held by 1,408 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This new monograph presents Dr. Luce's current understanding of the behavioral properties people exhibit (or should exhibit) when they make selections among alternatives and how these properties lead to numerical representations of those preferences. It summarizes, and places in historical perspective, the research Dr. Luce has done on utility theory for over 10 years. Included are axiomatic theoretical formulations, experiments designed to test individual assumptions, and analyses of the fit to bodies of data of numerical representations derived from the theory.

Individual choice behavior; a theoretical analysis by R. Duncan Luce( Book )

33 editions published between 1959 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 744 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Aside from statistics, the most extensive and systematic mathematical applications in psychology have so far centered about problems of organisms making choices from discrete, well-defined sets of alternatives. One need only recall that this is a feature common to information theory, much of psychophysical scaling, utility theory and decision theory generally, stochastic learning theory, and many of the psychometric models. Whether it is a deep or superficial feature is another matter, but there can be little doubt that it exists. If it is deep, one can anticipate considerable benefit accruing to its exposure and study; if not, the study should make clearer some of the inherent differences that have led to a variety of theories. The purpose of this book is to undertake such a study. A simple probabilistic theory is presented that overlaps each of these fields in a significant way. It by no means subsumes them, but it does seem to be central in part of the development of each. To this common theory each special topic adds conditions of its own that result in its distinctive quality. The book is theoretical in the sense that it offers a mathematical theory of choice behavior, and it is not empirical in the sense that no new data are presented. It is not, however, anti-empirical. Throughout, questions of empirical verification are considered, and, wherever possible, existing data have been brought to bear. Whether the theory will ultimately have serious empirical consequences remains to be seen, but at the least it has initiated a number of experimental studies which will be reported in the periodical literature"--Preface

Sound & hearing : a conceptual introduction by R. Duncan Luce( Book )

16 editions published between 1993 and 2017 in English and held by 413 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

The Behavioral and social sciences : achievements and opportunities by National Research Council (U.S.)( )

4 editions published between 1900 and 1988 in English and held by 316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume explores the scientific frontiers and leading edges of research across the fields of anthropology, economics, political science, psychology, sociology, history, business, education, geography, law, and psychiatry, as well as the newer, more specialized areas of artificial intelligence, child development, cognitive science, communications, demography, linguistics, and management and decision science. It includes recommendations concerning new resources, facilities, and programs that may be needed over the next several years to ensure rapid progress and provide a high level of returns to basic research
Geometric representations of perceptual phenomena : papers in honor of Tarow Indow on his 70th birthday by R. Duncan Luce( Book )

11 editions published between 1995 and 2016 in English and held by 209 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

Foundations of measurement by David H Krantz( Book )

29 editions published between 1989 and 2007 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Foreword is infinite in multitude; and I mean by the sand not only that which exists about Syracuse and the rest of Sicily but also that which is found in every region whether inhabited or unhabited. Again there are some who, without regarding it as infinite, yet think that no number has been named which is great enough to exceed its multitude. And it is clear that they who hold this view, if they imagined a mass made up of sand in other respects as large as the mass of the earth, including in it all the seas and the hollows of the earth filled up to a height equal to that of the highest mountains, would be many times further still from recognizing that any number could be expressed which exceeded the multitude of the sand so taken. But I will try to show you by means of geometrical proofs, which you will be able to follow, that, of the numbers named by me and given in the work which I sent to Zeuxippus, some exceed not only the number of the mass of sand equal in magnitude to the earth filled up in the way described, but also that of a mass equal in magnitude to the universe
