Identities and Their Uses: Response to "Rate, Probability and Matching" by Rachlin and Locey
Thorne, David R.
Journal of the Experimental Analysis of Behavior, v94 n3 p369-372 Nov 2010
Some of the differences between Rachlin & Locey (2010) and Thorne (2010) are due to what assumptions are taken as givens versus questionable. Most of the other apparent differences are largely linguistic and can be resolved by agreeing on terminology. The identity combining both rate and probability of reinforcement is general, has already revealed order not previously noted, even in its currently simple form, and provides a way of incorporating additional variables known to influence and characterize behavior.
