The Statistics`Regression` has a nice function called Regression that can be used to do weighted linear least squares fits providing lots of statistical information about the results of the fit. The option ParameterTable provides "standard errors" for the best fit parameters. However, the package description does not define standard errors. I am not familiar with this term. Even if it means standared deviation, what is its mathmetical definition in this package? --Ron Elsner NASA/MSFC
