An international panel of contributors address the principles of desig n and analysis in chemical research and development, with a thoughtful , user-friendly approach. Organized in chapters dealing with major act ivities, this volume generates understanding through numerous examples and practical applications drawn from research and development chemis try. The authors concentrate on principles and interpretation rather t han formal derivation and proof, and adopt the unifying theme that sta tistics and chemometrics are essentially extensions of the logical pro cesses used every day by chemists. Thus, they allow a greater understa nding of problems more quickly and easily than purely intuitive method s.
