Three experiments used pigeons in an autoshaping procedure and a single-subject design to examine compound stimulus control in classical conditioning. Experiment 1 examined the blocking effect, and Experiment 2 examined the unblocking effect. In both experiments, response-independent food was first delivered intermittently in the presence of one(More)
Pigeons chose between two aperiodic, time-based schedules of reinforcement. The arithmetic mean interreinforcement interval of the first schedule was short, but the harmonic mean was long, whereas the arithmetic mean interreinforcement interval of the second schedule was long, but the harmonic mean was short. The pigeons preferred the schedule with the(More)
Two experiments investigated the extent to which response contingencies influence the choice between two schedules of reinforcement by exposing pigeons to a concurrent-chains procedure in which reinforcers in one terminal link were response-independent, and in the other terminal link, response-dependent. In Experiment 1, the pigeons were indifferent between(More)
— This paper studies the coordination problem for a team of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) that frequently collects data from a set of unmanned ground sensors (UGSs) and delivers it to a ground station (GS). We formulate this problem as a continuous, two-boundary time-constrained version of the multi-traveller salesmen problem. We present a market-based(More)
Mathematical models are often held to be valuable, if not necessary, for theories and explanations in the quantitative analysis of behavior. The present review suggests that mathematical models primarily derived from the observation of functional relations do indeed contribute to the scientific value of theories and explanations, even though the final form(More)
636 utonomous geo location of RF emitters using small, unmanned systems is a game-changing technology for military, government, and commercial missions. This technique employs a novel application of a common RF direction-finding technique called pseudo-Doppler. Emergent autonomous control concepts are used to control the sensor platform and optimize flight(More)
Procedural variables are concerned with the way subjects contact stimulus, response, and reinforcer variables and relations in an experiment. Procedural variables may therefore be understood as tools that allow researchers and theorists to explore the generality of their conceptions of independent variables, behavioral processes, and quantitative laws of(More)
