Закон Хика, который мы потеряли в интерпретации - Vadym Shliachkov - Medium
The law says that the mean reaction time is linear function of the mean entropy. Entropy growths logarithmically with the number of choices available.
is reaction time
is mean entropy
and are coefficients (should be found empirically for each case)
Hick’s law is about choice reaction time, not decision time as is commonly thought.
The law presumes that correct answer is known and is not something that should be thought about or discovered. (Subjects undertook a training before running the experiment.)
The law is not universal. There are many situation when it does not apply.
