Table 1 AICc (Akaike Information Criterion with small sample correction) for exponential and hyperbolic functions in delay and probability discounting, and SP (subjective probability of obtaining delayed rewards)

From: A hyperbolic decay of subjective probability of obtaining delayed rewards

  Exponential Hyperbolic
Delay discounting 92.33 86.49
Probability discounting 90.59 82.33
SP (subjective probability) -6.7 - 14.37
  1. Hyperbolic functions better fit behavioral data in delay and probability discounting and SP. Note that smaller AICc indicates better fitting.
