Detailed Description

Perform linaralized error propagation by estimating the Jacobian.

Given a transformation f and a random sample X, estimate the propagated uncertainties by performing a Taylor series and keeping the linear term:

Cov[f(X)] = df/dX Cov[X] (df/dX)^T + O(d^2f/dx^2)

where df/dX is the Jacobian of f at X, as estimated by finite differences of dx. This procedure is exact for linear transformations; for non-linear transformation, it will introduce bias.
