Eleven different, filler-free polymers were depth profiled until all secondary ion signals were stable. Discriminant function analysis and principal components analysis were performed on a dataset containing the intensities of noncharacteristic hydrocarbon secondary ions, measured in this steady state. Discriminant function analysis showed that these secondary ions were sufficient to correctly identify all polymers using leave-one-out correction. Even with principal components analysis, which uses no prior knowledge about the origin of a data point, identification was shown to be possible. © 2004 American Institute of Physics.

    The aim of this note is to show that the centroid method has two optimality properties. It yields loadings with the highest sum of absolute values, even in absence of the constraint that the squared component weights be equal. In addition, it yields scores with maximum variance, subject to the...

    According to cognitive load theory, instructions can impose three types of cognitive load on the learner: intrinsic load, extraneous load, and germane load. Proper measurement of the different types of cognitive load can help us understand why the effectiveness and efficiency of learning...
