Abstract : Most error analysis involving measurements depends on a knowledge of the measurements. The probabilities associated with given error limits are calculated after the measurements are taken. The present analysis undertakes to predict these probabilities, before the measurements are taken, on the basis of the statistical properties of all the random variables involved. The method developed for this prediction typically requires numerical techniques for solution, and is well suited to computer use.
