Abstract:

This lecture attempts to highlight a discussion of common practices based on the Influence of Social and Behavioral Elements on Legacy Linear Analyses. Utilizing the well-known phrase you cant fit a square peg in a round hole or you cant fit a round peg in a square hole and mathematizing it, we would attempt to set the stage to discuss which one gives us less uncovered area. With this in mind we would look at recent attempts at solving large problems by using less than optimal solutions, and solving relatively small problems with large mathematical models. We will also discuss possible social and behavioral elements and drivers, and the potential implications of these practices.
