Sketch of the box model. Balls are thrown at random until all the cells of the box are full. Then the box is emptied and a new cycle starts.

(a) Fraction of errors , fraction of alarm time , and loss function as a function of for the forecasting strategy in a box model with . (b) Error diagram for this strategy. Each point on the curve is the result of using a different value of . The large dot corresponds to , for which the loss function reaches a minimum. The diagonal lines are isolines of . A random guessing strategy would render .
