Contents of Main are used my classification of the method. But this is not clear.
Relationship between the method and the purpose is not "one to one" or "one to many." It is "many to many." Because of that relationship is not easy to understand. The image of the system of methods is the figure in this page. Processes of the methods are key points to understand.
The common points of mathematical models are "Cleansing", "Model Building" and "Model Using." This classification is useful to understand the relationship among methods and purposes.
The first step is raw-data observation.
By the observation, we find outlier, missing value , significant figures and so on.
The second is to make Graphs of Disribution and line graphs. We understand the data deeply.
For example, in multi-regression analysis , "Model Building" is selection of variance using linear formulation . We look for the sets of X variables which make the most suitable formulation.
By "Model Building", the formulation clearly expresses the data set is made. We use the formulation.
If the purpose is cause-and-effect analysis, information that we find on the process of making formulation is important.
If the purpose is prediction validity of the formulation is important. But it is not important for the use of cause-and-effect analysis.
