Of extreme practical importance are
methods, which enable us not only to
avoid having to use Bayes' theorem explicitly, but
also to avoid working with probability distributions.
propagation of uncertainty, including due
to statistical effects of unknown size, is done in this
way in all routine applications, as
has been remarked in the previous section.
These methods are discussed in Chapter ,
together with some words of caution about
their uncritical use (see Sections ,
