Analysis of Uncertainty

A part of analysis of uncertainty is termed propagation of error or propagation of variance.  But, analysis of uncertainty is more comprehensive than just propagation of variability; and uncertainty analysis guides quality improvement in processes, products and procedures.   Further, classic approaches to propagation of uncertainty are limited to analytically tractable equations.  The monograph r3eda site Analysis of Uncertainty in Calculations 2017-08-03 provides a generic and comprehensive discussion.  The topic http://www.r3eda.com/bootstrapping-uncertainty-assessment/ provides more details and software for the bootstrapping technique.
