gama-local uses two basic statistical parameters
Confidence probability determines significance level on which statistical tests of adjusted quatities are carried. Actual type of reference standard deviations m0_a specifies whether during statistical analysis we use a priori reference standard deviation m0 or a posteriori estimate m0'.
We can choose only the type of actual reference standard deviation (m0 or m0') but not its value. The value corresponds to a priori given value of reference standard deviation or to the results of adjustment. On the type of actual reference standard deviation depends the choice of density functions of stochastic quantities in statistical analysis of the adjustment.
The standard deviantion of an adjusted quuantity is computed in dependence of the choice of actual type of reference standard deviation m0_a according to formula
where q is the weight coefficient of the corresponding adjusted
unknown parameter or observation. Apart from the standard deviation,
gama-local computes for the adjusted quantity its confidence
interval in which its real value is located with the probability
