Chemometric Techniques for Quantitative Analysis shows how to produce and use quantitative analytical calibrations in a laboratory or production environment following a variety of methods, how to estimate the time and resources needed to develop analytical calibrations, and how to employ the quantitative software provided with a wide range of instruments and commercial software packages. Among several, this bestselling volume covers basic and classical approaches, component regression; PCR in action; partial least squares; PLS in action. An extensive appendix offers a glossary, a list of errors and tests for reduced Eigenvalues.
