Occam's razor (also written as Ockham's razor and in Latin lex parsimoniae, which means 'law of parsimony') is a problem-solving principle devised by William of Ockham (c. 1287–1347).

The principle states that among competing hypotheses that predict equally well, the one with the fewest assumptions should be selected.
