MATLAB® for Chemometricians, Volume 33 provides a complete introduction to the topic of MATLAB programming. Written by, and for, chemometricians, the book presents a very practical and task-oriented introduction on how to use MATLAB. Programming tips are contextualized within specific chemometric objectives, and each practical section is accompanied by theoretical background that describes the basic chemometrics concepts behind the algorithms for deeper understanding. The book starts from scratch (i.e., descriptions of the basic MATLAB layout and how to perform the most elementary algebraic operations) and leads readers through increasingly demanding tasks.

Programming tricks are introduced when discussing specific problems in a concrete manner. Readers will not only be able to use existing chemometric toolboxes, but also to write and develop their own, even with the possibility of building graphical user interfaces.

Key Features

  • Provides continuous interexchange among illustration of the main chemometric concepts behind the functions and how to translate theory into fully working tools
  • Includes programming tasks illustrated by different examples and placed in the framework of specific chemometric problems
  • Provides tasks to be performed—along with a presentation and discussion of algorithms—with gradually increasing complexity


Chemometrics researchers and those in analytical chemistry, spectroscopy, food chemistry metabolomics, and other related industries seeking to know more about the MATLAB environment and how to use it to perform chemometric calculations; MSc and PhD students approaching both MATLAB and chemometrics for the first time. Courses in applied analytical chemistry, spectroscopy and data mining
