This tutorial offers a basic hands-on approach to statistical analysis for chemists and spectroscopists. Without involving complicated mathematics, this book is designed to provide the reader with the basic principles underlying the use of common mathematical and statistical tools. Particular emphasis has been given to problem-solving applications and the proper use and interpretation of spectroscopic data. With exercises throughout, this book is also suitable for use as a textbook in analytical chemistry, instrumental analysis, and statistics in chemistry courses.
* Serves as a primer for all chemists who need to know more about statistical analysis
* Explains the effect of error on data and how to make the correct interpretation
* Written in a readable style with minimal mathematics
* Developed from the popular series of the same name first published in Spectroscropy magazine
