represents a value v associated with a standard error se.
represents a value associated with an uncertainty in the form of mean v corresponding and standard error se as well as symmetric relative confidence interval i.
specifies a confidence interval from v-il to v+iu.
- DV values are mainly used as the output from uncertainty propagations using MCEvaluate, MonteCarloSimulation and DVEvaluate where the resulting values do not follow a NormalDistribution.
- DV values can also be used as input to propagate uncertainties using the function DVEvaluate, but the results have to be analyzed with care as it is assumed that DV is a normally distributed NDV.
- DV values are more general than NDV values, which assume that values follow a NormalDistribution.
MCEvaluate returns a DV:
