MVC1: Software for Multivariate Calibration

  • Alejandro C. Olivieri


A simple, easy to use and intuitive software for first-order calibration is presented. It is freely available in the internet, and incorporates all the calibration models discussed in this book, including variable selection, pre-processing filters, and the latest advances in figures of merit.
