Response Times

R. Duncan Luce

Oxford University Press

This chapter begins with a discussion of the study of response times. Response times are treated as observations of a random variable. The mathematics of stochastic processes is then used to understand the process. This gives rise to the distributions of these random variables. Generating functions and elementary concepts of stochastic processes are discussed.

Keywords:   generating functions, stochastic processes, response time, random variables
