An Introduction to Error Analysis: The Study of Uncertainties in Physical Measurements

The need for error analysis is captured in the book's arresting cover shot - of the 1895 Paris train disaster. The early chapters teach elementary techniques of error propagation and statistical analysis to enable students to produce successful lab reports. Later chapters treat a number of more advanced mathematical topics, with many examples from mechanics and optics. End-of-chapter problems include many that call for use of calculators or computers, and numerous figures help readers visualise uncertainties using error bars.

User Review  - dead letter office - Goodreads

Good (very) basic introduction to the analysis of uncertainty. Written with undergraduate physicists in mind, and he does a good job communicating the intuition involved in handling uncertainty. Good ... Read full review

User Review  - Sergey - Goodreads

At first the book seemed to be a little too school-ish and simple. Yet it contains all the necessary basis information to start understanding uncertainties. Just what I needed. Read full review
