I understand the quoted part from the Wikipedia article "Scientific
Modeling" without any mathematical formulae, even though I have not written
it and even though I do not even know who has written it.
You need meta-knowledge to be able to asses if a model is correct and
useful. In science this meta-knowledge is: All Relevant Data.
For example, because a wealth of data proves that the basilar membrane BM)
in the mammalian cochlea does not respond to sound levels below about 60
dB, once the outer hairs cells (OHC) have been made temporally or
Is this statement true? I have heard that there is a travelling wave on the
No travelling wave below 60 dB SPL?
