Chem 468 - Undergraduate Research

(offered on request, permission of instructor required)

Supervised, independent research on projects under study in the Laboratory for Chemometrics. Undergraduates pursuing any of these projects will work with graduate students, post-doctoral workers and with Prof. Brown. Students interested in doing research in this laboratory should have some prior experience in computing with either Linux, Macintosh or Windows systems. Some exposure to computer programming in R, Matlab or C and to measurements made with instruments is helpful, but not essential. This course requires a time commitment of four hours of research per week per credit hour.

Chem 623  - Chemometrics (Last taught Fall, 2013)

A survey of modern chemical data analysis intended for advanced undergraduate students or graduate students in chemistry, biology, chemical engineering or the mathematical sciences. This course provides a "hands-on" introduction to modern methods of reducing and analyzing chemical data using computers. Briefly reviews probability, simple statistics and optimization methods, then covers  principal components analysis, multiple linear regression, chemical calibration methods, pattern recognition, time series analysis of chemical data and other selected topics. 3 credits, graduate credit.
