Abstract : The thesis considers two models for the computation of position finding confidence, one of which uses a bivariate normal distribution of region, and the other a chi-square distribution. The two models are based on different assumptions, these are explained and explored. A computer simulation model is presented which uses both position finding models under varying conditions.
