Introduction to Multivariate Data Analysis (Chemometrics)

when 4 August 2014 - 8 August 2014
duration 1 week
credits 5 ECTS

Multivariate data analysis (chemometrics) can be used to solve problems involving large amounts of multivariate data generated by e.g. spectroscopy, chromatography or time series of many variables. In chemometrics informative patterns are found and interpreted instead of looking at classical, and often inadequate, univariate measures. Chemometrics is widely used in science and in scientific papers. It is important to know what features to use, how to use them correctly and how to interpret plots. Chemometrics include hypothesis generating methods, but can also be used for classification and prediction.
