Error Determine the confidence we have in obtaining the expected value based on past history and measuring method. Graphical Quantify the dependence a result appears to have on an independent variable. Statistical Determine the extent to which results of different experiments are significantly different from each other given the expected value and confidence for the experiments. 1...
