Jody Culham error bars lecture
"If events are dependent (whether causal or not), the aggregate is not going to be Gaussian. " why?
Fitting curves to data
 R is often used in the lab
 Python alone and with SciPy can be used easily, example here
 MATLAB is sometimes used
 Using MacCurveFit for OS9; rarely used
