This curve (or a closer look at the consequences of Eq. 11)) shows that the least-absolute-deviations criterion provides a curve where y M ( X 1 )  Y1 , y M ( X N )  YN . 13) For the case considered it turns out that the use of the least-absolute-deviations criterion ends up in a result that can be obtained without using any optimization: any two points can be chosen to define the linear model.

Do these models provide valuable new insight into the mechanism of this process? The 22 1 Deterministic Analysis of Observations latter is not the case because there is no convincing evidence for the concepts represented by these two models. The advantage of polynomial models is their range of applicability and accuracy: we have the choice between a rather accurate quadratic model for the entire data range and a simple and very accurate linear model that describes the development for t  1990 with a relative error below 1%.
