*Least squares adjustment is a model for the solution of an overdetermined system of equations based on the principle of least squares of observation residuals. It is used extensively in the disciplines of surveying , geodesy , and photogrammetry —the field of geomatics , collectively. There are three forms of least squares adjustment: parametric , conditional , and combined.*

Abstract This study examines the effects of foreign direct investment, market capitalization and adjusted on stock market using time series data from to A result shows that there is a significant relationship between foreign direct investment and stock market, as well as there is also a significant relationship between adjusted saving and stock market but there is insignificant relationship between market capitalization and stock market. Foreign direct investment, Market capitalization.

Yet, for some reason, students are rarely given opportunity to acquire facility in these lines, the result being that too many of our scientists and engineers go about their work without such equipment.

It would be almost impossible to enumerate the variety of ways in which the ideas relating to these subjects adapt themselves to even such simple bits of quantitative work as the chemist or the surveyor is daily called upon to do. And it is difficult for the writer to imagine how an elaborate research in any of the exact sciences can be carried on at all, without the constant application of these principles throughout both the preliminary and the final stages of the work.

The satisfaction to be gained from the application of the theory of pre cision alone is well worth all the time necessary to acquire these subjects. Add to this the fact that the v M VI PREFACE theory of error distribution has direct theoretical bear ing upon certain very important laws and problems of physics, chemistry, astronomy, and even of biology, and the reasons for students having opportunity to attain the elements of the subject become still more emphatic. This small volume embodies the material used by the writer as lecture notes during the past twelve years.

It is intended as a presentation of the Theory of Errors and Least Squares in such a simple and con cise form as to be useful, not only as a textbook for undergraduates, but as a handy reference which any research worker can read through in an evening or so and then put into immediate practice. It will be noticed that the illustrative examples and problems are drawn from various branches of science, suggesting the wide range of possible application. No attempt is made, of course, at an exhaustive treatment in such small compass.

Some of the special methods employed by expert computers, often included in larger works, have been purposely omitted. For the conven ience of the student, and in order not to interrupt the thread of the subject, a few of the more complicated mathematical discussions have been set apart in the Appendix and referred to at the appropriate places. It is not intended that they shall be omitted from the course when using the book as a text, though the cas ual reader may get along very well without them.

The writer wishes to express his appreciation to the numerous friends who have kindly given aid by way PREFACE Vll of furnishing data for the illustrative examples, or otherwise. Where material has been taken from other works, due credit has been given for the same.

To measure a quan tity is to determine by any means, direct or indirect, its ratio to the unit employed in expressing the value of that quantity. Thus, in measuring a line, we find that it is a certain number of times as long as the foot or the centi meter, and this number is said to be its value in feet or centimeters.

This definition must be clearly understood to be in dependent of whatever process is used in the measurement. We could measure the area of a polygonal piece of sheet iron in two ways : either by measuring its sides and angles and computing its area by geometry, or by weighing it and comparing its weight to that of a square piece with unit side.

Either of these processes is a true measure ment of the area, though neither is a direct measurement. Indirect Measurement.

The Surveying Handbook pp Cite as. The general subject of errors in measurement was discussed in Chapter 3, and the two classes of errors, systematic and random or accidental , were defined. It was noted that systematic errors follow physical laws, and that if the conditions producing them are measured, corrections to eliminate these can be computed and applied; however, random errors will still exist in all observed values.

## Least squares adjustment

The method of least squares is a standard approach in regression analysis to approximate the solution of overdetermined systems sets of equations in which there are more equations than unknowns by minimizing the sum of the squares of the residuals made in the results of every single equation. This work presents basic methods in least squares adjustment computation. Least squares adjustments have their roots in the normal distribution, which is pictured in Figure 1.
