Abstract

This report reviews the mathematical techniques required to evaluate a spectral integral, including understanding uncertainty associated with the independent variable, wavelength, and the dependent variable, the measured spectral quantity. It also considers correlation in the quantities involved, using both an 'error model' and a covariance matrix.
