An Introduction to Error Analysis: The Study of Uncertainties in Physical MeasurementsThe 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. Endofchapter problems include many that call for use of calculators or computers, and numerous figures help readers visualise uncertainties using error bars.
