Pesenti, Mauro; Seron, Xavier; Samson, Dana; Duroux, Bruno
Mathematical Cognition, v5 n2 p97-148 1999
Describes the basic and exceptional calculation abilities of a calculating prodigy whose performances were investigated in single- and multi-digit number multiplication, numerical comparison, raising of powers, and short-term memory tasks. Shows how his highly efficient long-term memory storage and retrieval processes, knowledge of calculation algorithms, and good short-term memory capacity all contribute to his calculation expertise. (Contains 70 references.) (Author/ASK)
