I have gcc installed on my Sun, with support for Fortran built in. I
downloaded the Fortran source code and attempted to compile it. The GCC
version I have does not recognise it as Fortran. I am not a Fortran
programmer myself, but the code a bit like Fortran.
There are no significant comments in the Fortran source code, so I didn’t
bother looking any more. There are some data files too, but there’s no
mention of how to use them.
I expect a Monte Carlo simulation is a good way to go. All the
uncertainties I have seen for instruments are based on a statistical model,
expressed as a confidence level (typically 95%). Monte Carlo methods are
good for that.
However, I believe that they are taking a purely analytical approach. Files
have been distributed for Maxima which is a symbolic computational program.
Also Mathematics too.
Hopefully you can make a useful contribution. Personally I am going to give
up unless I can see a written description of the aims and methodology.
