DescriptionThis book is aimed at the large number of people who need to use chemometrics but do not wish to understand complex mathematics, therefore it offers a comprehensive examination of the field of chemometrics without overwhelming the reader with complex mathematics.
* Includes five chapters that cover the basic principles of chemometrics analysis.
* Provides two chapters on the use of Excel and MATLAB for chemometrics analysis.
* Contains 70 worked problems so that readers can gain a practical understanding of the use of chemometrics.
