This thesis describes the development and evaluation of a theoretical framework to account for the dynamic aspects of behaviour at the Human-Computer Interface (HCIF). The purpose behind this work is to allow for the consideration of dynamic Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) in the design of interactive computer systems, and to facilitate the generation of design tools for this purpose. The work describes an example of a design tool which demonstrates how designers of interactive computer systems may account for some aspects of the dynamics of behaviour, involved with the use of computers, in the design of new interactive systems. The thesis offers empirical and literary evidence to support the validity of the dynamic factors governing the interaction of humans with computers.
