Poggendorff I, 855; DSB V, p.304; Merzbach 1823a-b (all for journal issue); not in Honeyman, Norman or Roller-G. - FIRST SEPARATE EDITION of pp. 33-90 in vol. 5 of "Commentationes societatis regiae scientiarum Gottingensis" (1823). Gauss had presented the two parts on February 15, 1821 and on February 2, 1823. A supplement not available here appeared in volume 6 in 1828 (presented on September 16, 1826). Inspired by the many years of preoccupation with celestial mechanics and geodesy, with the associated evaluation of observation results and the adjustment of observation errors, Gauss made several significant contributions to the development of probability and mathematical statistics. In 1823 the great work 'Theoria combinationis observationum erroribus minimis obnoxiae' was published, a work of lasting value for science, in which Gauss formulates his theory of observation errors and reinvents his method of least squares.
