I'm working on a major extension of this article (and will draw some sdt graphs in due course). My draft is here. Feel free to pitch in!!Limegreen 01:40, 7 January 2006 (UTC)

Department of Transportation[edit]

The Department of Transportation in the united States also employes SDT in evaluating intersection and locomotive grade crossing accidents, prevention, and safety. Because the number of accidents that drivers DO NOT get in to when they cross intersections, the expectation of having an accident is low, the frequency of accidents is low and the risk is low. It would be informative if the article was updated reflect some more real-world applications of SDT being applied within the transportation infrastructure.

d-prime analysis[edit]

I was trying to figure out what the equation in Baumann and Greenlee (page 1434) was about. Couldn't find anything about it on wikipedia. They cite a text book (by Thomas_D._Wickens) that I can't get hold of (too lazy to cross campus to library). But I found http://www.linguistics.ucla.edu/faciliti/facilities/statistics/dprime.htm - maybe this could be put into this page? Lionfish0 (talk) 14:59, 13 October 2011 (UTC)
