Hi Hötzi,

» Congratulations for an obvious solution (aka, re-inventing the wheel). ;-) See what Ohlbe wrote here and there.

Is the proposal really old and is it really obvious?

I see there was in the past a proposal or two about 1/(Conc^z) where z is not an integer, but I am not sure if there was ever anyone who:
  1. Defined an objective function which seeks to minimize a relevant measure of departure from predictability (that same predictability which maps into the criteria of guidelines).
  2. Showed the existence of a minimum of that function.

Novelty here is not the existence of a funky value of z, but the way of finding it, the nature of it.

I could be wrong, but...

Best regards,

No, of course you do not need to audit your CRO if it was inspected in 1968 by the agency of Crabongostan.
