About the Authors
  • 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 original Handbook, 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. The second volume focuses on areas of mathematics that are used in constructing models of cognitive phenomena and decision making, and on the role of measurement in 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

    Reviews & endorsements

    ‘This Handbook contains review articles by leaders of the field. It will be a valuable reference for all who are interested in mathematical psychology.' Brian Skyrms, University of California, Irvine

    ‘This volume is the second in a series devoted to presenting a very readable, yet broad and deep, up-to-date perspective on mathematical psychology. It will be of interest to graduate students and experienced researchers who are concerned with modeling and measurement in the psychological and cognitive sciences.' Thomas S. Wallsten, University of Maryland
