This functional form is known as the population regression function (PRF). In this step, you’re also acknowledging that the relationship you hypothesized in Step 1 is expected to exist when you look at the average of the data; not for every single observation.

Several econometric models can be derived from an economic model. Such models differ due to different choice of functional form, specification of the stochastic structure of the variables etc.

Stochastic control or stochastic optimal control is a sub field of control theory that deals with the existence of uncertainty either in observations or in the noise that drives the evolution of the system.

The system designer assumes, in a Bayesian probability-driven fashion, that random noise with known probability distribution affects the evolution and observation of the state.

In regression analysis and related fields such as econometrics, specification is the process of converting a theory into a regression model.

This process consists of selecting an appropriate functional form for the model and choosing which variables to include. Model specification is one of the first steps in regression analysis.

For instance in a simulation model of an M/M/1 queue, the server and the queue are system entities, arrival rate and service rate are input variables, mean wait time and maximum queue length are performance measures, and 'time in system = wait time + service time' is an example of a functional relationship.
