Written by a distinguished experimental psychologist, this authoritative volume provides a clear, well-balanced, and comprehensive treatment of the mathematical theory of human response time and the role it plays in our understanding of the mind's structure. Focusing on the conceptual issuesentailed in the modelling of response time, Professor Luce rigorously reviews the relevant experimental data and discusses the importance of analyzing data in terms of the hazard function.
R. Duncan Luce is at Harvard University.

Editorial Reviews

"This is an important book for those who study response times or use them as tools. What about those who find mathematics indigestible? The fact is that there are not many clearer expositions of response times, with or without mathematics. In many cases, the author's presentation of work isclearer than the original literature....This book has something for everyone who is seriously interested in response times: a history, a handbook, and a glimpse of our future science." --Contemporary Psychology
