Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

This best-selling text by John Taylor, now released in its second edition, introduces the study of uncertainties to lower division science students. Assuming no prior knowledge, the author introduces error analysis through the use of familiar examples ranging from carpentry to well-known historic experiments. Pertinent worked examples, simple exercises throughout the text, and numerous chapter-ending problems combine to make the book ideal for use in physics, chemistry and engineering lab courses. This book has been translated into nine languages and has more adoptions than we can count.

CHOICE Review

It is inevitable that uncertainties will occur in taking measurements in any real world (as opposed to textbook) scientific endeavor. The question then naturally arises as to how to deal with such uncertainties: to estimate how large the errors are, and to possibly reduce them in some justifiable fashion. Taylor offers a reorganization and expansion of his first edition (CH, Dec'82). He takes into account the vast increase in computing power that has come about in the 15 years since the book's first edition. Exercises have been graded, and their number nearly doubled. Students who work conscientiously with this book (and it is possible that they could do so on their own) will end up after part 1 knowing about error propagation, some elementary statistics, and some justification of the use of these statistics, based on the normal distribution. In part 2 there are other statistical topics, such as least-square fits, covariance and correlation, the binomial and Poisson distributions, and the chi-squared test. It should also be possible to use this entire book as a text in an elementary (noncalculus) statistics course such as is normally taught in departments of mathematics. Lower-division undergraduates.
