The first book to comprehensively review the rapidly growing field of receptor modeling. It systematically presents the analytical and mathematical methods that have been developed and used to characterize airborne particulate matter, and to identify its sources. The techniques described can be applied to a variety of problems since the measured properties in a particular system can be related to the sum of independently contributing causal factors. The book features an introduction to matrix algebra and several important concepts in numerical analysis, including the singular value decompositions.
