Measurement and Representation of Sensations offers a glimpse into
the most sophisticated current mathematical approaches to
psychophysical problems. In this book, editors Hans Colonius and
Ehtibar N. Dzhafarov, top scholars in the field, present a broad
spectrum of innovative approaches and techniques to classical
problems in psychophysics at different levels of stimulus
complexity. The chapters emphasize rigorous mathematical
constructions to define psychophysical concepts and relate them to
observable phenomena. The techniques presented, both deterministic
and probabilistic, are all original and recent. Subjects addressed
throughout the six chapters of this volume include: *computing
subjective distances from discriminability; *a new psychophysical
theory of intensity judgments; *computing subjective distances from
two discriminability functions; *an alternative to the
model-building approach based on observable probabilities; and
*possible forms of perceptual separability developed within a
generalization of General Recognition Theory. Measurement and
Representation of Sensations is a valuable text for both behavioral
scientists and applied mathematicians.
