ISBN: 978-0-471-59507-6 May 1994 275 Pages


Demonstrates how the information theory approach to experimental data can be of benefit not only to analytical chemists but to all those using these techniques in the decision making process. Deals with information-theoretic fundamentals as well as with practical aspects. Discusses the system nature of analysis which is of particular importance in multicomponent analysis.
