This chapter represents the author’s understanding of it, and is presented here to promote discussion of its relative worth to the pendulum clockmaker, as distinct from the needs of those working with atomic frequency standards. If one measures the time difference between his clock and the radio time standard WWV, measures it every day or so1 over a year’s time, and then plots it up on a graph as time error vs time, one has an almost perfect picture of his clock’s time performance. It shows what the clock’s time error was over a reasonably long period of time, and shows at a glance how accurate the clock was.
