noRegMin: Artificial Data: Regular Minimality Violated

Description Usage Format Note References See Also Examples


Artificial data of fictitious ‘discrimination probabilities’ among 10 fictitious stimuli.




The noRegMin data frame consists of 10 rows and 10 columns, representing the fictitious stimuli presented in the first and second observation area, respectively. Each number, a numeric, in the data frame is assumed to give the relative frequency of perceivers scoring ‘different’ to the row stimulus ‘followed’ by the column stimulus.


This dataset is artificial and included for illustrating regular minimality being violated. It differs from the artificial data regMin only in the entry in row \#9 and column \#10.
