Foundations of Measurement: Representation, axiomatization, and invariance
Courier Corporation, 2006 - Mathematics - 356 pages
This classic series in the field of quantitative measurement established the formal foundations for measurement, justifying the assignment of numbers to objects in terms of their structural correspondence. Volume III examines representation as expressed in axiomatization and invariance.
