This book comprises seven chapters, an appendix, a bibliographical section (98 references), and an index. Exercises are provided at the end of each chapter. The stated goal of the book is to address, in a simple manner, branches of error analysis finding direct applications in engineering practice.

The book can be roughly be divided into three parts. The first (Chs 1-3) presents fundamentals of error calculus. Included in this material is a survey of classical concepts from elementary probability theory (including continuous random variables) and statistics. This very classical material is presented in a rather pleasant and...
