|WikiProject Chemistry||(Rated Start-class, Low-importance)|
I'm new to wikipedia, but I like the idea of it, so I just added a chunk to this page. I expect most people who look at this page would be either students just learning about analytical chemistry or people from outside the field. So I tried to tailor it to that audience. The format isn't very "wikipedish" so I'm going to flag it for formatting.
I'm not going to remove the stub tag - I'll leave that to someone else.
Physical chemistry stub
Does this count as a stub anymore? it seems long enough to be considered an article. D Hill 13:32, 26 June 2006 (UTC)
Not so keen on the linear regression bit, which is a highly inappropriate method for smoothing calibration curves and isn't used on the radiocarbon ones. Precise references escape me at the moment but there's stuff by Buck and Blackwell in Radiocarbon, a Gaussian process-based method by Gomez-Aguilar, another method by Christen, etc, etc. I'm sure the intcal04 paper/issue details better methods. Anyone up to the challenge? : Ferocci 11:13, 21 December 2006 (UTC)
Not just analytical chemistry
From what I hear calibration and calibration curves are kind of a big deal in engineering, can that be discussed? For instance they're used when converting raw data sensors into engineering units.
