Question: Is an exact analysis of an approximate model an approximate analysis of the exact model?

 

"All analyses are based on some assumptions which are not quite in accordance with the facts. From this, however, it does not follow that the conclusions of the analysis are not very close to the facts." - H. Cross.

 

"It is the mark of an educated mind to rest satisfied with the degree of precision which the nature of the subject admits and not seek for exactness where only an approximation is possible." - Aristotle

 

"One pound of learning requires ten pounds of common sense to apply it." - Persian proverb.

 

Dragline: Why you got to go and say fifty eggs for? Why not thirty-five or thirty-nine?
Luke: I thought it was a nice round number.
