New handbook of mathematical psychology: Foundations and Methodology

Contributor(s): Batchelder, William H [Editor] | Colonius, Hans [Co-editor] | Dzhafarov, Ehtibar N [Co-editor] | Myung, Jay [Co-editor]
Material type: TextTextSeries: Cambridge handbooks in psychologyPublisher: Cambridge Cambridge University Press 2017Description: xvii, 605 p.ISBN: 9781107029088Subject(s): Psychometrics | Mathematical models | PsychologyDDC classification: 150.151 Summary: The field of mathematical psychology began in the 1950s and includes both psychological theorizing, in which mathematics plays a key role, and applied mathematics, motivated by substantive problems in psychology. Central to its success was the publication of the first 'Handbook of Mathematical Psychology' in the 1960s. The psychological sciences have since expanded to include new areas of research, and significant advances have been made in both traditional psychological domains and in the applications of the computational sciences to psychology. Upholding the rigor of the first title in this field to be published, the New Handbook of Mathematical Psychology reflects the current state of the field by exploring the mathematical and computational foundations of new developments over the last half-century. This first volume focuses on select mathematical ideas, theories, and modeling approaches to form a foundational treatment of mathematical psychology. • Demonstrates how standard advanced mathematics can play an essential role in the psychological sciences • Focuses on mathematical foundations rather than specific empirical studies • Aims to increase the sophistication of students and scholars in mathematical psychology and related fields in the behavioral and social sciences, mathematics, economics, and analytic philosophy http://www.cambridge.org/catalogue/catalogue.asp?isbn=9781107029088
