Detection Theory: A User's Guide

Synopsis

Detection Theory is an introduction to one of the most important tools for analysis of data where choices must be made and performance is not perfect. Originally developed for evaluation of electronic detection, detection theory was adopted by psychologists as a way to understand sensory decision making, then embraced by students of human memory. This book covers the basic principles of detection theory, with separate chapters on measuring detection and evaluating decision criteria.
