    Question to Herbert Prinz
    From: Jan Kalivoda
    Date: 2003 Dec 25, 18:48 +0100

    Can I ask the question, Herbert?
    
    In a German paper on errors of common astronavigational methods from 1889, the 
    term "wahrscheinlicher Fehler" is used. It is said that these 
    "wahrscheinliche Fehler", i.e. "probable errors" were obtained by the method 
    of the least squares.
    
    It is right to consider such "probable error" as error that is exceeded in 50% 
    of measurements, i.e. 0.6745 of the standard error?
    
    Thank you for an explanation in advance.
