Uncertainty assessment in the analysis of alpha particle spectra
The variances and covariances of optimized peak fit parameters are used to determine the uncertainty attributed to the result of alpha particle spectra analyses. The variance-covariance matrices are calculated for a convolution-type peal fitting function. An example is taken from the analyses of plutonium spectra used in the EUROMET project No. 325.
