Weights

Weights
is an option for various fitting and other functions which specifies weights to associate with data elements.

DetailsDetails

  • Weights->Automatic associates weight 1 with all data elements.
  • Weights->{w1, w2, ...} associates weight with the i^(th) data element.
  • Weights->func associates weight with the i^(th) data element.
  • Using VarianceEstimatorFunction->(1&) and Weights->{1/y12, 1/y22, ...}, is treated as the known uncertainty of measurement and parameter standard errors are effectively computed only from the weights. »
