This collection provides a timely and provocative survey of current works in mathematical psychology in the style of Clyde Coombs, remembered by his fellow psychologists and other social scientists for his seminal contributions to the analysis of qualitative measurement and multidimensional scaling, and for his innovative models of conflict and choice. Each essay illustrates the contin- uing influence of Coombs's work and approach to the application of mathematics and basic psychological phenomena.
