Behavioral sciences and auto-transformations. Introduction

Author

Listed:
  • Harin, Alexander

Abstract

The goal of the present article is to define transformations (named here as auto-transformations) of probability density functions of random variables into similar functions having smaller sizes of their domains. In particular, auto-transformations from infinite to finite sizes of domains will be analyzed. The goal is aroused from the well-known problems of behavioral sciences.
