Prediction in the Hypothesis-Rich Regime

Abstract: We describe the fundamental difference between the nature of problems in traditional physics and that of many problems arising today in systems biology and other complex settings. The difference hinges on the much larger number of a priori plausible alternative laws for explaining the phenomena at hand in the latter case. An approach and a mathematical framework for prediction in this hypothesis-rich regime are introduced.
