Summer research


Maximum likelihood, fitting a line

fitting a line background, derivation

Reporting results with uncertainty reminder

Principle of Maximum Likelihood

Excel Sheet

Media:307L 2007 Week 8 Millikan data.xlsx

Fitting a line (linear regression, least-squares fit for a line)

Why and when linear fit?

Theoretical background

Practical examples (We did this last week)

Fitting y = mx + b versus x = m'y + b'

More sophisticated curve fitting...a must read!

REMEMBER to use example of fitting y = mx + b versus x = m'y + b'

If time, Talents lecture
