Description

This unique text blends together state estimation and chemometrics for the application of advanced data-processing techniques. It further applies system theory in order to develop a modular framework to be implemented on computer for the development of simple intelligent analyzers. Short reviews on the history of state estimation and chemometrics are given, together with examples of the applications described, including classical estimation, state estimation, non-linear estimation, the multi-component, calibration and titration systems and the Kalman filter. The contents are very systematic and build the ideas up logically to appeal to specialist post-graduates working in this area, together with professionals in other areas of chemistry and engineering.

About the author

P C Thijssen

Dr Pierre Cornelis Thijssen studied chemistry at the Radboud University in the Netherlands, obtaining his Masters Degree in 1978. He then moved to the University of Amsterdam, where he graduated in 1986 with a Ph.D 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.
