" ... very useful for teaching in an Instrumentation course for M.Sc postgraduates in analytical chemistry. The sequence of the topics and the explanations are very clear."
"[Y]our web site has such excellent content...."
"I tried the demo version of SPECTRUM and I think is a very useful tool for the introduction of signal processing to analytical chemistry students."
" ... a splendid program."
"...thank you for taking the time to create these
