Synopses & Reviews
This book/disk package provides simple, handy rules and useful algorithms and programs for handling data and estimating errors -- both by graphical and analytic methods. It features unique programs for explicit, immediate use for many different pocket calculators and computers -- e.g., for estimating errors in correctly weighted regression: linear, log, exponential, exponential with counts, and power law fits. Covers: Error Analysis for One Variable; Error Analysis for More than One Variable; Finding Relations between Variables; and Using Trigonometric and Exponential Functions in the Laboratory. Provides an accompanying disk (for MAC and Windows 95) -- with Excel(TM) worksheets for Data Fits, cT Error Analysis Programs, Pascal, and BASIC programs. Includes error analysis programs for mean, standard deviation for grouped data; weighted and unweighted linear and unweighted linear regression. For scientists and engineers.
System requirements for accompanying computer disc: Macintosh or Windows compatible equipped with a CD-ROM and Microsoft Excel version 4 or later (the enhanced FitHaven worksheet requires Excel 5 or later versions and the cT programs will run only on a Mac or Window 95 - compatible machine). Includes bibliographical references and index.
