Abstract : Models of memory and information storage useful in the modeling and analysis of decisionmaking with bounded rationality are discussed. An information theoretic model of permanent memory is presented for describing the accessing of stored information by the algorithms within the human decisionmaker model. It is then applied to the study of the performance - workload characteristic of a decisionmaker performing a dual task. (Author)
