Previous: Dynamic power management and
Computer-human interaction has been jointly investigated by
Computer Scientists and Psychologists. Research in this field
provides insights into user response time. A recent survey of user
response time models can be found in .
Specifically, system-user interaction with menus has been studied
in [20,12], and usage of a stylus
and soft keyboard has been studied in .
Research on human reading speed is discussed
in . Another important aspect of system-user
interaction modeling is user interface specification. Many formal
models have been used for this purpose, such as state-transition
diagrams (STD) , Petri
goal-operation-methods-selections , and user
action notation .
