Abstract : An analytic model of the basic decision making process is presented; in this it is shown how external inputs may be employed to reduce the scale of the decision making task, which is represented in the form of a pair of coupled decision making processes. An approach based on control and estimation theory is used in modelling the decision making process; this is supplemented by concepts drawn from knowledge representation and from game tree search. Finally the decision maker is examined as part of a control process in order to identify the relative tempos of different operations and interactions. (Author)
