Example text

Except for technicalities associated with R1 and R2 and for the fact that identically labeled x and y in (5) are generally dierent stimuli, the mathematical form of (5) is essentially the same as in Krumhansl’s (1978) model. Somewhat more directly, the “quadrilateral dissimilarity” in (5) is related to the dissimilarity between two “uncertainty blobs,” as introduced in Dzhafarov (2003b). Figure 17 provides an illustration. The “common space” in which the blobs are defined has the same meaning as the set of indices a; b assigned to stimuli x; y in the description of the quadrilateral dissimilarity above: that is, xa and yb are mapped into blobs centered at a and b, respectively.

With the right-hand color y serving as a fixed reference stimulus, function x ! à (x; y) in this study reached its minimum at x = y, x 6= y =) à (y; y) < à (x; y) : The experiment was not conducted with fully randomized color pairs, and it was not replicated with the left-hand color x used as a reference. One cannot therefore check for the compliance with Regular Minimality directly. It is reasonable to assume, however, that à (x; y) for side-by-side presented colors is order-balanced, à (x; y) = à (y; x) ; and under this assumption, it is easily seen, the inequality above implies Regular Minimality in the simplest form: x and y are mutual PSEs if (and only if) x = y.
