Abstract: We apply a Bayesian -razor- to forecast Bayes factors between differentparameterizations of the galaxy cluster mass function. To demonstrate thisapproach, we calculate the minimum size N-body simulation needed for strongevidence favoring a two-parameter mass function over one-parameter massfunctions and visa versa, as a function of the minimum cluster mass.
