Calculates the confidence interval of the best Gaussian fit for an input data set.

If the noise of **y** is Gaussian-distributed, you must fit the observations with the Curve Fitting (Gaussian Peak) node using the least square method to obtain the **amplitude**, **center**, and **standard deviation**.

Level of certainty for the confidence interval. **confidence level** must be greater than 0 and less than 1.

**Default: **0.95, which means the probability that the best fit falls between **lower bound** and **upper bound** is 95%.

Dependent values. **y** must contain at least four points.

Independent values. **x** must be the same size as **y**.

Weights for the observations.

**weight** must be the same size as **y**. The elements in **weight** cannot be 0. If an element in **weight** is less than 0, this node uses the absolute value of the element. If you do not wire an input to **weight**, this node sets all elements in **weight** to 1.

Amplitude of the fitted model.

Error conditions that occur before this node runs.

The node responds to this input according to standard error behavior.

Standard Error Behavior

Many nodes provide an **error in** input and an **error out** output so that the node can respond to and communicate errors that occur while code is running. The value of **error in** specifies whether an error occurred before the node runs. Most nodes respond to values of **error in** in a standard, predictable way.

**Default: **No error

Error information.

The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.

Standard Error Behavior

**error in** input and an **error out** output so that the node can respond to and communicate errors that occur while code is running. The value of **error in** specifies whether an error occurred before the node runs. Most nodes respond to values of **error in** in a standard, predictable way.

Confidence radius of the standard deviation of the fitted model.

In the following illustration, the region between the upper and lower confidence bounds is the confidence interval.
