Simplification[edit] Neglecting correlations or assuming independent variables yields a common formula among engineers and experimental scientists to calculate error propagation, the variance formula:[4] s f = ( ∂ f ∂ x GUM, Guide to the Expression of Uncertainty in Measurement EPFL An Introduction to Error Propagation, Derivation, Meaning and Examples of Cy = Fx Cx Fx' uncertainties package, a program/library for transparently Retrieved 22 April 2016. ^ a b Goodman, Leo (1960).

For highly non-linear functions, there exist five categories of probabilistic approaches for uncertainty propagation;[6] see Uncertainty Quantification#Methodologies for forward uncertainty propagation for details.

For example, repeated multiplication, assuming no correlation gives, f = A B C ; ( σ f f ) 2 ≈ ( σ A A ) 2 + ( σ B

For such inverse distributions and for ratio distributions, there can be defined probabilities for intervals, which can be computed either by Monte Carlo simulation or, in some cases, by using the Generated Sat, 15 Oct 2016 14:12:30 GMT by s_ac5 (squid/3.5.20) ERROR The requested URL could not be retrieved The following error was encountered while trying to retrieve the URL: http://0.0.0.5/ Connection Given the measured variables with uncertainties, I ± σI and V ± σV, and neglecting their possible correlation, the uncertainty in the computed quantity, σR is σ R ≈ σ V Generated Sat, 15 Oct 2016 14:12:30 GMT by s_ac5 (squid/3.5.20)

In statistics, propagation of uncertainty (or propagation of error) is the effect of variables' uncertainties (or errors, more specifically random errors) on the uncertainty of a function based on them.

Resistance measurement[edit] A practical application is an experiment in which one measures current, I, and voltage, V, on a resistor in order to determine the resistance, R, using Ohm's law, R

For example, the bias on the error calculated for logx increases as x increases, since the expansion to 1+x is a good approximation only when x is small. The system returned: (22) Invalid argument The remote host or network may be down. First, the measurement errors may be correlated. p.37.
