### All-Possible-Couplings Approach to Measuring Probabilistic Context

- Computer SciencePloS one
- 2013

It is shown how one can quantify and classify all logically possible contextual influences by studying various sets of probabilistic couplings, i.e., sets of joint distributions imposed on random outputs recorded at different (mutually incompatible) values of inputs.

### The Joint Distribution Criterion and the Distance Tests for Selective Probabilistic Causality

- MathematicsFront. Psychology
- 2010

The distance tests for selective influence previously formulated for two random variables in a two-by-two factorial design are extended to arbitrary sets of factors and random variables, and the generalization turns out to be the simplest possible one.

Consideration of the problem of making predictions concerning a system on the basis of measurements made on another system that had previously interacted with it leads to the result that one is led to conclude that the description of reality as given by a wave function is not complete.

- EconomicsFront. Psychology
- 2010

This paper offers the currently most complete solution to the challenge in the case of transitivity of binary preference on the theory side and two-alternative forced choice on the empirical side, and recommends to abandon the latter as a model of transitive individual preferences.
