Editorial Reviews

"It is a pleasure to see a book like this involving the applications of mathematical sciences to psychological events. Such application to biological events has certainly produced vast rewards in biophysics, and it is high time such progress is made in areas of psychological behavior andmental sciences. This book, intended as a textbook for a two semester graduate course, does this job excellently." --Research Communications in Psychology, Psychiatry and Behavior
