Measurement Errors and Uncertainties is a practical reference on theory and methods of estimating measurement errors and uncertainty for scientists and engineers in industry and experimental research. Building from the fundamentals of measurement theory, this book offers a wealth of practical recommenclations and procedures. It differs from the majority of books in that it balances coverage of probabilistic methods with detailed information on the characterization, calibration, standardization, and limitations of measuring instruments, with specific examples from both electrical and mechanical systems, making the book useful to both the theorist and experimenter.
In addition to a general updating to include current research, new material in this second edition includes increased coverage of indirect measurements, with a new, simpler, and more efficient method for this class of measurements. Remarkably, this method eliminates the necessity of correlation coefficient.
