uncertainties is a Python module, which allows calculations such as
(0.2 +/- 0.01) * 2 = 0.4 +/- 0.02
to be performed transparently; much more complex mathematical expressions
involving numbers with uncertainties can also be evaluated transparently.
Correlations between expressions are correctly taken into account; x-x is
thus exactly zero, for instance. The uncertainties produced by this module
are what is predicted by error propagation theory.
