  • Research into the behavioral effects of schedules of reinforcement created a need for more accurate descriptions of procedures than were usually presented verbally. Early notation systems, developed by Skinner, Findley, and Mechner, addressed this problem, but failed to be generally applicable. State notation is a graphic notational system based on Mechner’s work and the mathematical theory of finite automata. Snapper and others have developed the SKED software system for the PDP-8 family of… CONTINUE READING
