This second edition of "Statistics for Analytical Chemistry" shows some of the important new advances which have taken place recently; and a new chapter has been introduced to give extended coverage of sampling and of control charts. There is additional material provided on type I and type II errors, the sequential use of significance tests, non-parametric methods, and on non-linear calibration plots. The authors have expanded their discussion of pattern recognition and factorial design with the addition of detailed solutions to some of the problems provided.;The authors have deliberately not confused the issue with detailed theoretical background to the statistical tests described, and have concentrated on presenting tests appropriate to the problems likely to be encountered in the laboratory. There are many worked examples and exercises at the end of each chapter to test the reader's grasp. The book is a most welcome addition to the literature for analytical chemists, to guide their understanding of this highly quantitative science.
