Reflections on mathematical modeling (II)

Brain data dump...

levels of formalization:
  • what do previous data tell us - deterministic models (e.g., average, linear regression)
  • what do previous data tell us - stochastic models (e.g., range, standard dev., standard error)
  • increased sophistication (e.g., non-normal forms of stochasticity: null models, interesting parametric distributions).
  • meta-analysis - combining previous empirical studies
  • models with and without feedback or loops
Learning a language, learning modeling concepts.

Modeling data, modeling dynamics.

Learning by,
  1. copying,
  2. applying,
  3. combining,
  4. creating.
