In computer science, binary search, also known as half-interval search,logarithmic search, or binary chop, is a search algorithm that finds the position of a target value within a sorted array.
Fitts's law (often cited as Fitts' law) is a predictive model of human movement primarily used in human–computer interaction and ergonomics.
Franciscus (Franz) Cornelius Donders FRS FRSE (27 May 1818 – 24 March 1889) was a Dutch ophthalmologist.
A generalization (or generalisation) is the formulation of general concepts from specific instances by abstracting common properties.
Information theory studies the quantification, storage, and communication of information.
In mathematics, the term linear function refers to two distinct but related notions.
In mathematics, a linear map (also called a linear mapping, linear transformation or, in some contexts, linear function) is a mapping between two modules (including vector spaces) that preserves (in the sense defined below) the operations of addition and scalar multiplication.
In mathematics, the logarithm is the inverse function to exponentiation.
Mental chronometry is the use of response time in perceptual-motor tasks to infer the content, duration, and temporal sequencing of cognitive operations.
In computing and telecommunications, a menu is a list of options or commands presented to the user of a computer or communications system.
Morse code is a method of transmitting text information as a series of on-off tones, lights, or clicks that can be directly understood by a skilled listener or observer without special equipment.
In mathematics, a multiplicative inverse or reciprocal for a number x, denoted by 1/x or x−1, is a number which when multiplied by x yields the multiplicative identity, 1.
The power law of practice states that the logarithm of the reaction time for a particular task decreases linearly with the logarithm of the number of practice trials taken.
Ray Hyman (born June 23, 1928, Chelsea, Massachusetts) is a Professor Emeritus of Psychology at the University of Oregon in Eugene, Oregon, and a noted critic of parapsychology.
A scientific law is a statement based on repeated experimental observations that describes some aspect of the universe.
A sigmoid function is a mathematical function having a characteristic "S"-shaped curve or sigmoid curve.
In psychology, a stimulus is any object or event that elicits a sensory or behavioral response in an organism.
Stimulus–response (S–R) compatibility is the degree to which a person's perception of the world is compatible with the required action.
The Paradox of Choice – Why More Is Less is a 2004 book by American psychologist Barry Schwartz.
William Edmund Hick (1 August 1912 – 20 December 1974) was a British psychologist, who was a pioneer in the new sciences of experimental psychology and ergonomics in the mid-20th century.
