Uncertainty Analysis (Error Analysis) Handbook
This
manual
is mainly a collection of sections from my lab manuals for
various courses. If this becomes popular, I will try to develop it
further.
Because of the mathematical nature of many of these topics, the
manual
is produced in
LA TE X
rather than in HTML.
Topics in the manual include the following (links will take you directly to
specific chapters in the manual):
In PDF
format, produced in
LaTeX
Specific sections
Linearizing equations
chapter from the handbook. (I've separated this
one as it seems to be a popular topic of web
searches on its own.)
Other resources
Alternate
linearizing
equations explanation.
(I think this will be more popular than
the book chapter, since it's more visual
and interactive.)
OGG video (screencast) of
linearizing
equations explanation.
Screencast of Linearizing Equations presentation
Alternate
repeated measurements
explanation.
(I think this will be more popular than
the book chapter, since it's more visual
and interactive.)

New! PHP version of the calculator in case your browser doesn't
have Javascript. (i.e. Everything runs on the server so any browser
should be ok.)
