Speech Title: Variable(s) Connected by Theoretical Model and Model for Respective Observed Data
Abstract: Observed data, on some variable(s) considered for certain study, collected from experiments or survey usually suffers from various errors. Error occurs due to cause/causes which is/are assignable (or intentional). Assignable cause/causes of error are controllable. Even if all the assignable causes of error are controlled or eliminated, the observed data still do not become free from error; they still suffer from some error which occurs due to some unknown and unintentional (chance) cause which is unavoidable, uncontrollable. If the variable(s) under study follow some rule/law that can be described by some theoretical model, the observed data on the variable(s) may not satisfy the same model due to the association of errors with the observed data on the variable(s). Consequently, findings obtained by analyzing the observations using this theoretical model also suffer from error. Recently, some studies have been made (i) on searching for the model to be satisfied by the observed data containing error corresponding to the theoretical model which connects the variables under study and (ii) on the analysis of the model to be satisfied by the observed data. The studies have been made in the case of some common but significant theoretical models. This paper describes an overview of the study that has been made so far.
