Hi

a small improvement would be to make a regression with the intercept parameter egal to zero

best regards

Thanks for the suggestion. You might want to take a look at the UncertainMeasurementSample class, because it's FitToProportionality method does this already.

Basically, Sample represents a statistician's view of data while UncertainMeasurementSample represents a physical scientist's view of data. For various reasons statisticians tend to avoid linear models with fixed intercepts, but given an actual physical model that predicts a proportional relationship doing such a fit is a perfectly sensible and common thing for a physical scientist.
