Abstract

This article describes an optimal method (conflation) to consolidate data from different experiments, and illustrates the advantages of conflation by graphical examples involving gaussian input distributions, and by a concrete numerical example involving the values of lattice spacing of silicon crystals used in determination of the current values of Planck's constant and the Avogadro constant.
