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.Read more
- 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 volume, the first of several, is a welcome effort to systematize the mathematical ideas and foundational issues that characterize modern developments in mathematical psychology. A highly readable resource for anyone interested in theory as it relates to the psychological and cognitive sciences."
Richard C. Atkinson, President Emeritus of the University of California and Professor Emeritus of Psychological and Cognitive Sciences at the University of California, San DiegoSee more reviews
"Containing substantial chapters detailing applications of mathematics to a wide range of topics in behaviour and cognition, written by leading scholars in the field, and updated to reflect current trends and new developments, the New Handbook is destined become an essential resource for students and experienced researchers alike."
Philip L. Smith, Journal of Mathematical Psychology
