The papers I was referring to deal with models of memory at the information
processing level:

Estes, W.K., (1986). Array models for category learning. Cognitive Psychology,
  18, 500-549.

Smith, E.E., & Medin, D.L. (1981). Categories and concepts. Cambridge, MA:
  Harvard Press.

These deal mainly with statistical or mathematical models.  For other
computational models see John Anderson's symbolic models, and McClelland
& Rumelhart's connectionist models.
