This course dedicated to Ph.D. students is focused on various multivariate chemometric methods including classification and regression. The practical application of multivariate statistical techniques is emphasized to solve specific analytical problems related to the interests of course attendees. The preprocessing of experimental data before the statistical evaluation is discussed considering the reliability of the results obtained and the elimination of interfering effects, e.g. noise, background deformation, instrumental function.
Aim of the course -
Last update: Matějka Pavel prof. Dr. RNDr. (12.09.2018)

Students will be able to:

  • describe the principles of individual multivariate statistical methods
  • describe the algorithms used in the implementation of these methods in commercial software
  • apply these statistical methods for the solution of physicochemical and analytical issues
