Ockham, W. O. (n.d.). Model Comparison. Retrieved from

Mathematics document containing theorems and formulas.

Excerpt: We have seen in some detail how to conduct inferences { test hypotheses, estimate parameters, predict future observations { within the context of a preassigned model, representing some working hypothesis about the phenomenon being observed. But a scientist must be concerned also with a bigger problem; how to decide between different models when both seem able to account for the facts. Indeed, the progress of science requires comparison of different conceivable models; a false premise built into a model that is never questioned, cannot be removed by any amount of new data.
