The Role of Short-term Working Memory in Mental Arithmetic
Hitch, Graham J.
Cognitive Psychology, 10, 3, 302-23, Jul 78
Two simple quantitative models were derived from a series of experiments which explored the role of information storage in working memory when performing mental arithmetic. The decay model is a tractable analysis of a complex task which assumes a decay process in working storage. Similar analyses are recommended for problem solving activities involving working memory.
