Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. Excerpt: ...not their first powers, more than three-fourths of the final sum of the squares of the residuals is due to the systematic errors. In this, as in almost every other physical measurement, the difficulty of reducing the accidental errors by repetition, or of obtaining sufficiently accordant results, is small compared with that of eliminating the systematic errors, or of determining the true values.
