Practical Instrumental Analysis

Methods, Quality Assurance and Laboratory Management

Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
ISBN: 3527665919
Category: Science
Page: 492
View: 4194
This practical book in instrumental analytics conveys an overview of important methods of analysis and enables the reader to realistically learn the (principally technology-independent) working techniques the analytical chemist uses to develop methods and conduct validation. What is to be conveyed to the student is the fact that analysts in their capacity as problem-solvers perform services for certain groups of customers, i.e., the solution to the problem should in any case be processed in such a way as to be "fit for purpose". The book presents sixteen experiments in analytical chemistry laboratory courses. They consist of the classical curriculum used at universities and universities of applied sciences with chromatographic procedures, atom spectrometric methods, sensors and special methods (e.g. field flow fractionation , flow injection analysis and N-determination according to Kjeldahl). The carefully chosen combination of theoretical description of the methods of analysis and the detailed instructions given are what characterizes this book. The instructions to the experiments are so detailed that the measurements can, for the most part, be taken without the help of additional literature. The book is complemented with tips for effective literature and database research on the topics of organisation and the practical workflow of experiments in analytical laboratory, on the topic of the use of laboratory logs as well as on writing technical reports and grading them (Evaluation Guidelines for Laboratory Experiments). A small introduction to Quality Management, a brief glance at the history of analytical chemistry as well as a detailed appendix on the topic of safety in analytical laboratories and a short introduction to the new system of grading and marking chemicals using the "Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS)", round off this book. This book is therefore an indispensable workbook for students, internship assistants and lecturers (in the area of chemistry, biotechnology, food technology and environmental technology) in the basic training programme of analytics at universities and universities of applied sciences.

A Practical Guide to Geometric Regulation for Distributed Parameter Systems


Author: Eugenio Aulisa,David Gilliam
Publisher: CRC Press
ISBN: 1420061356
Category: Mathematics
Page: 294
View: 7417
A Practical Guide to Geometric Regulation for Distributed Parameter Systems provides an introduction to geometric control design methodologies for asymptotic tracking and disturbance rejection of infinite-dimensional systems. The book also introduces several new control algorithms inspired by geometric invariance and asymptotic attraction for a wide range of dynamical control systems. The first part of the book is devoted to regulation of linear systems, beginning with the mathematical setup, general theory, and solution strategy for regulation problems with bounded input and output operators. The book then considers the more interesting case of unbounded control and sensing. Mathematically, this case is more complicated and general theorems in this area have become available only recently. The authors also provide a collection of interesting linear regulation examples from physics and engineering. The second part focuses on regulation for nonlinear systems. It begins with a discussion of theoretical results, characterizing solvability of nonlinear regulator problems with bounded input and output operators. The book progresses to problems for which the geometric theory based on center manifolds does not directly apply. The authors show how the idea of attractive invariance can be used to solve a series of increasingly complex regulation problems. The book concludes with the solutions of challenging nonlinear regulation examples from physics and engineering.
