Demonstrates how the information theory approach to experimental data can be of benefit not only to analytical chemists but to all those using these techniques in the decision making process. Deals with information-theoretic fundamentals as well as with practical aspects. Discusses the system nature of analysis which is of particular importance in multicomponent analysis.

Information Theory--Theoretical Basis of Analytical Chemistry?


From Our Editors

Regarded as a seminal work in chemometrics, Information Theory as Applied to Chemical Analysis by Karel Eckscklager and Vladimir Stepanek shed light on the importance of information theory, stressing that the very mechanisms of information gathering are key to the quality of the analytical data collected. Continuing that examination, this new volume, Information Theory in Analytical Chemistry, looks at the practical applications of information theory, especially as a tool for optimizing chemical analysis. Complete with up-to-date examples from diverse areas such as toxicology, environmental science, and metallurgy, the book provides a workable framework for developing, optimizing, and assessing analytical procedures. Layer by layer, the analytical process is dismantled - and reassembled - so the reader develops a genuine, practice-oriented grasp of just how information theory shapes the chemical analysis process. Beginning with the fundamentals of information theory and analytical chemistry, the book then considers the systemic nature of chemical analysis, examini
