the literatures of machine pattern recognition ( Rosenfeld & Pfaltz, 1966) and human decision making ( Dawes, 1979). Thus, cognitive tasks as diverse as digital picture processing and medical diagnosis seem to require rules for the integration of information from independent sequential decisions. Pigeon cognition, too, appears to use the logic of sequential decision making.
