Focused Book Series

The first two titles in our “Focus on” series of short books have been published. These are available in print and PDF download. The aim is to provide a focused look at a particular topic. The first two books (Design of Experiments and Near Infrared Spectroscopy on Agricultural Harvesters) are collections of articles that have been edited to produce a uniform book. There will be further collections coming out, as well as brand new, unpublished material.

Design of Experiments

If you’re going to experiment, then it is always worth doing it properly” writes Tom Fearn in this Focus on Design of Experiments. The book introduces the idea of Design of Experiments (DoE) and why it important, before going on to discuss:

  • Experiment
  • Factorial designs
  • 2k factorial designs
  • Fractional factorial designs
  • Response surface designs
  • Evolutionary operation (EVOP)

Focus on Design of Experiments is available in print, and PDF formats. Buy a copy now from our secure online shop:

Near Infrared Spectroscopy on Agricultural Harvesters

Over the past few years, there has been increasing emphasis on the deployment of NIR analysers onto harvesting machinery to give real-time, point-of-cropping data on biological material composition and quality. This book provides an overview of the topic.

  • Technical aspects
  • Data management and modelling
  • The background to commercial developments
  • Economic aspects
