Constrained Least Squares and Error Propagation

Error propagation and constrained fits are standard tasks in data analysis. An example for error propagation is the transformation from cartesian to polar coordinates, and an example for constrained fits are the application of energy and momentum conservation to particle reactions. The programs ERRPRP and APLCON allow to perform these tasks with a minimum amount of coding in given applications.
