  In concert with measurement is uncertainty, and students in science and engineering need to identify and quantify uncertainties in the measurements they make. This book introduces measurement and uncertainty to second and third year students of science and engineering. Its approach relies on the internationally recognised and recommended Price: $ Introduction to international guidelines for calculating and expressing uncertainty (the GUM) for students and professionals in science and engineering. Emphasising the role of uncertainty in scientific and 'everyday' contexts, worked examples, case studies and exercises are spread throughout the text. This book introduces measurement and uncertainty to second and third year students of science and engineering. Its approach relies on the internationally recognised and recommended guidelines for 3/5(1). The Uncertainty in Physical Measurements: An Introduction to Data Analysis in the Physics Laboratory presents an introduction to uncertainty and to some of the most common procedures of data analysis. This book will serve the reader well by filling the gap between tutorial textbooks and highly specialized : Springer-Verlag New York.

The book gives a detailed explanation of the methods presented by NIST in the “GUM” – Guide to Uncertainty of Measurement. Emphasis is placed on explaining the background and meaning of the topics, while keeping the level of mathematics at the minimum level necessary.   This book is mainly addressed to - dergraduate students, but can be a useful reference for researchers and for secondary school teachers. The book is divided into three parts and a series of appendices. Part I is devoted to a phenomenological introduction to measurement and uncertainty.   An Introduction to Uncertainty in Measurement: Using The Gum (Guide To The Expression Of Uncertainty In Measurement) Paperback – 1 Jun. by L. Kirkup (Author) out of 5 stars 9 ratings See all formats and editionsReviews: 9. A measurement result is only complete if it is accompanied by a statement of the uncertainty in the measurement. Measurement uncertainties can come from the measuring instrument, from the item being measured, from the environment, from the operator, and from other sources.
