As in other physical sciences, measurements and models are used in Geodesy to describe (parts of) physical reality. It may happen, however, that some of the measurements or some parts of the model are biased or in error. These mistakes do occasionally happen, and it is therefore of importance to have ways of detecting and identifying such mistakes. This book provides the necessary statistical theory and testing procedures for resolving situations such as these. Contents include: Basic concepts of hypothesis testing. Testing of simple hypotheses. Testing of composite hypotheses. Hypothesis testing in linear models.
