This book presents the Theory and Practice of Sampling (TOS) starting from level zero in a novel didactic framework without excessive mathematics and statistics. It represents 20 years of teaching experience which has developed into a unique conceptual framework with which the TOS’ six principles and four unit operations can be understood in a unifying manner, enabling the reader to start sampling in a correct fashion right away. The book covers sampling from stationary lots, from moving, dynamic lots (process sampling) and has a vital focus on sampling in the analytical laboratory. It contains a wealth of complementing cases, examples and references (most of which are accessible on-line) meant to inspire and motivate the reader to individual skills-building and further self-study.

Auger Electron Spectroscopy (AES) and X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS or ESCA) are well-established techniques for surface analysis and also (when combined with sputter depth profiling) for thin film and interface analysis. Surface Analysis by Auger and X-Ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy is the first comprehensive treatment of the subject for over 10 years.
A History of European Mass Spectrometry presents the history of mass spectrometry from the point of view of prominent European scientists working in the field and representatives of leading manufacturers of mass spectrometers in Europe. It is by no means a monograph or a textbook but rather a collection of separate essays, written by a number of authors who present their personal thoughts on various aspects of the development of mass spectrometry. A History of European Mass Spectrometry focuses mainly, though not exclusively, on developments in Europe, which was a cradle of this very important analytical method.
Every scientist, young or old, who works with mass spectrometry will find something of interest in this book.
