Measurements With Persons: Theory, Methods and Implementation Areas
Following the successful MINET training course in 2008, a book is being written that will cover a similar range and depth of interdisciplinary subjects relevant to the Measuring the Impossible research area: “Measurements with Persons: Theory, Methods and Implementation Areas”.
The main aim of the book is to give scientists the opportunity to widen their background knowledge and prepare themselves for the interdisciplinary problems typical of Measuring the Impossible topics.
A tentative outline of the book chapters is shown below.
- Measurement across physical and behavioural sciences
- Measurement in psychology
- Measurements of physical parameters in sensory physics
- Measurement in behavioural and social science
- Applications of measurement theory
- Towards a probabilistic theory of measurement
- Experimental and quasi experimental methods
- Multivariate measurements
- Towards a theory of identification with infinite dimensional pattern spaces
- The idea that launched a thousand experiments reconsidered
- Foundations of universal Fechnerian scaling
- Neural networks and fuzzy sets, fuzzy logic
- Measuring and reconstructing multiscale dynamics
- Psychological measurement for sound description and evaluation
- Skin senses and haptic perception
- Smell, food and taste
- Visual perception
- Functional brain imaging
- Body language
- Risk assessment and decision making
The book is foreseen to be released in 2010. People in the e-MINET community will be advised of the publication and further details will be given in the next issue of the MINET Newsletter.
