Statistics in Spectroscopy, Second Edition, is an expanded and updated version of the original title. The aim of the book is to bridge the gap between the average chemist/spectroscopist and the study of statistics. The book introduces the novice reader to the ideas and concepts of statistics and uses spectroscopic examples to show how these concepts are applied. Several key statistical concepts are introduced through the use of computer programs.
Serves as a primer for all chemists who
All spectroscopists and those involved in statistics and analysis of data, both chemical and biological, especially those in chemistry, statistics, computer science and biology departments. Also relevant to the manufacturing, pharmaceutical, agricultural and textile industries, and all large corporations with analytical chemistry and chemical engineering departments
