Chemometrics in Spectroscopy is a collection of column articles that the authors published in Spectroscopy over a period spanning more than two decades. Each article is generally arranged as a chapter in the book, and chapters dealing with the same or similar topics are arranged closely as a section block rather than following the original sequence in the magazine. Although each article or series of articles only discusses one specific topic, collectively, the articles form a comprehensive reference that is a valuable source for readers wanting to learn chemometrics, especially with its applications in spectroscopy.
