This unique text blends together state estimation and chemometrics for the application of advanced data-processing techniques. State Estimation in Chemometrics, second edition describes the basic methods for chemical analysis—the multicomponent, calibration and titration systems—from a new perspective. It succinctly reviews the history of state estimation and chemometrics and provides examples of its many applications, including classical estimation, state estimation, nonlinear estimation, the multicomponent, calibration and titration systems and the Kalman filter. The concepts are introduced in a logical way and built up systematically to appeal to specialist post-graduates working in this area as well as professionals in other areas of chemistry and engineering. This new edition covers the latest research in chemometrics, appealing to readers in bio-engineering, food science, pharmacy, and the life sciences fostering cross-disciplinary research.  

Key Features

  • Features a new chapter surveying the most up-to-date scientific literature on chemometrics, highlighting developments that have occurred since the first edition published

About the Authors

Pierre Thijssen

Dr. Pierre Cornelis Thijssen studied chemistry at the Radboud University Nijmegen in the Netherlands, obtaining his Master’s Degree in 1978. He then moved to the University of Amsterdam in the Netherlands, where he graduated in 1986 with a PhD based on his thesis entitled “State Estimation in Chemometrics,” which is the basis of this book. Since then, Dr. Thijssen has worked for various companies as a laboratory manager and chemometrician.

Sillas Hadjiloucas

Dr. Sillas Hadjiloucas received his Master’s Degree in Pure & Applied Biology in 1992 from the University of Leeds, United Kingdom, and in 1996, a PhD in Cybernetics from the University of Reading, United Kingdom. He worked on his Postdoc in Germany until the end of 1999. Dr. Hadjiloucas had worked as permanent member of Staff at Reading since January 2000, originally at the School of Systems Engineering (Cybernetics) and later transferred to the newly formed Bio-Engineering Department at Reading in Autumn 2016. His current appointment as Associate Professor is a joint one combining teaching and research.
