Introduction to two-way chemometrics

PARAFAC modeling

PARAFAC2 modeling

N-PLS modeling

Tucker3 modeling

Preprocessing of multi-way arrays


Advanced aspects

Learning outcome
After completing course the students will be able to apply advanced chemometric methods on real world problems. The course will focus on multi-way techniques such as multilinear-PLS, PARAFAC, PARAFAC2 and TUCKER. The methods treated will explicitly or implicitly cover the following application areas: classification, calibration, prediction, process optimization, spectral resolution, restrictions and interpretability of solutions.The student must be experienced in the critical use of PCA and PLS and must also be familiar with MATLAB.

Several papers will be provided before the course.

Teaching and learning methods
The course will be using lectures and practical exercises. PLS_Toolbox for Matlab is used throughout and must be installed before the course. Please bring your own data to the course and make sure it is readily available in Matlab. Your own data will form the basis for the final report.
