Abstract
The formalism of Least-Squares Adjustment enables treatment of response-parameter correlations. We study the effects of such correlations on the adjusted parameters and responses and on their associated uncertainty matrices. And in order to bracket these effects and avoid unnecessary technical complications, we limit our discourse to an elementary one-parameter one-response criticality problem.
