Abstract

Previous research has shown significant transfer for subjects solving two problems of isomorphic structure. The state-space representation of these problems is used to characterize their structure, and in particular, the state-space decomposition modulo isomorphic sub-problems is used to define “stages” within the problem's solution. Changes within these “stages” provide a framework for a more complete description and understanding of the transfer phenomenon.
