Two related questions.
First - I need a good way to display error bars on a
scatter plot. I have a set of x and y data, that I have attached as a text file along with y+err and y-err data (denoted +/-). The err values vary from point to point, and +err and -err are not necessarily the same.
Second - I am using the data to get a slope and an intercept. Once I
know. I need an easy way to calculate the errors in
slope and intercept? (This may be more of a math question than a MatLab
question, but I assume someone here knows the solution.)
Also I need a Chi square test to verify that my fit is in fact good. Can you also please explain that to me thanks! As you can see, I am not so great in Statistics so I need help.
The attached Matlab script has examples of how to plot error bars and how to estimate errors in slope and intercept of a linear fit.
File Rb85_N_mod.txt contains your original data with the "+/-" column removed.
Note that I ADDED ERRORS to you original data to make the illustration more visible, as your original errors ...
This provides methods of working with errors and Chi square in Matlab.
