Capítulo 10 Modelos

Statistical models are simplified description of data, usually constructed from some mathematically or numerically defined relationships. (Chambers and Hastie 1993, 13)

All models are wrong but some are useful. (Box 1979, 2)

[The approach to de Finetti’s theorem] emphasizes the basic importance of modelling, as opposed to arbitrary use of models. (Wechsler 1993, 349)
