Comparison of Different Calibration Methods Suited for Calibration Problems with Many Variables

Volume 46, Number 12 (Dec. 1992) Page 1780-1784

Holst, Helle

This paper describes and compares different kinds of statistical methods proposed in the literature as suited for solving calibration problems with many variables. These are: principal component regression, partial least-squares, and ridge regression. The statistical techniques themselves do not provide robust results in the spirit of calibration equations which can last for long periods. A way of obtaining this property is by smoothing and differentiating the data. These techniques are considered, and it is shown how they fit into the treated description.
