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 issues entailed 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.

Industry Reviews

"An extensive and well-presented account...Will certainly remain the basic reference for years to come...The book will be useful to many, whether or not they are theoretically inclined, and will be mandatory reading for anyone dealing with behavioral response times."--Science

"Fascinating and essential reading....This book has great richness to offer: to the cognitive scientist, using artificial intelligence and computational techniques as the main vehicle for modelling cognitive and perceptual processes; to the researcher, wishing only to use response times as a well-honed tool; as well as to the committed traditional mathematical psychologist....An important book which many psychologists will find both intriguing and useful. Every academic library should own it."--British Journal of Psychology

"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 is clearer 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
