 Written in a step-by-step, conversational style it describes and illustrates the Classical Least Square (CLS), Inverse Least Square (ILS), Principlal Component Regression (PCR) and Partial Least Square (PLS) techniques. It discusses the selection of calibration standards and introduces the fundamentals of factor spaces used in qualitative and discriminant analysis. It details the initial and continuing validation of calibrations and analyzers and explains the similarities, differences, pitfalls and tradeoffs among different chemometic techniques. It outlines the necessary steps for the creation and succesful long-term deployment of analytical calibrations. It demonstrates how chemometrics techniques can improve calibrations and produce better analytical results......and more.

This serves as an outstanding quide for analytical, environmental, pharmaceutical, and industrial and process chemists; geochemists; biologists and biochemists; spectroscopists and chromatographers; statisticians; food, forensic and materials scientists; toxicologists; quality control mangers; technicians and software engineers; and as a valuable supplemental text for undergraduate and graduate students in chemometics and analytical chemistry courses.
