Abstract

Abstract The theory of many multivariate chemometrical methods is based on the measurement of distances. The Mahalanobis distance (MD), in the original and principal component (PC) space, will be examined and interpreted in relation with the Euclidean distance (ED). Techniques based on the MD and applied in different fields of chemometrics such as in multivariate calibration, pattern recognition and process control are explained and discussed.
