Intends to bridge the gap between the average chemist/spectroscopist and the study of statistics. This book introduces the novice reader to the ideas and concepts of statistics and uses spectroscopic examples to show how these concepts are applied. It serves as a primer for all chemists who need to know more about statistical analysis.
