This report presents the research and analysis accomplished in order to develop new concepts of information theory and new equations that could allow the researcher to compute with more precision, the amount of information processed by a subject during the execution of a sequential mental task. A very sophisticated piece of equipment was used in order to simulate a sequential task of military nature. The results of the experiment proved that new equations to compute the amount of information processed should be used when the task to be performed implies that the operator has to go through different levels of "thinking" before he reacts to a stimulus.

Extended Closed-form Expressions for the Robust Symmetrical Number System Dynamic Range and An Efficient Algorithm for its Computation Pace, Phillip E.; Stanica, Pantelimon; Luke, Brian L.; Tedesso, Thomas W. (2014);The robust symmetrical number system (RSNS) is a number theoretic transform based on N > 2 sequences that can extract the maximum amount of information from symmetrical folding waveforms. The sequences, based on coprime ...
