Hi there, just wondered if someone could help me?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have a set of data from an experiment and have fitted a cosine fit to it. If the theoretical model for dark matter I have says the value for θ should be,say 2, and the cosine I have fitted has a θ=2+2.2σ, how could I go about saying for example "I can say with x% confidence my experimental data is consistent with the phase expected from dark matter?" I was trying to assume Gaussian error distribution and relating it to the area under a one tailed Gaussian but I am unsure if this is the correct way?

Many thanks
