The author has developed a framework for mathematical modelling within applied sciences. It is characteristic for data from ‘nature and industry’ that they have reduced rank for inference. It means that full rank solutions normally do not give satisfactory solutions. The basic idea of H‐methods is to build up the mathematical model in steps by using weighing schemes. Each weighing scheme produces a score and/or a loading vector that are expected to perform a certain task. Optimisation… 
Applications of the H-Principle of Mathematical Modelling
Traditional statistical test procedures are briefly reviewed. It is pointed out that significance testing may not always be reliable. The author has formulated a modelling procedure, the H-principle,
Latent Structure Linear Regression
A general framework for linear regression is presented that includes most linear regression methods based on linear algebra and uses the H-principle of mathematical modelling, which uses the analogy between the modelling task and measurement situation in quantum mechanics.
Common framework for linear regression
Methods for estimation of intrinsic dimensionality
The main goal of this thesis is to develop algorithms for determining the intrinsic dimensions of recorded data sets in a nonlinear context, with special consideration given to recent developments in non–linear techniques, such as charted manifold and fractal–based methods.
Predictive-property-ranked variable reduction with final complexity adapted models in partial least squares modeling for multiple responses.
The utility and effectiveness of four new predictor-variable properties, derived from the multiple response PLS2 regression coefficients, are studied for six data sets consisting of ultraviolet-visible (UV-vis) spectra, near-infrared (NIR) spectRA, NMR spectra and two simulated sets, one with correlated and one with uncorrelated responses.
Practical Considerations on Nonparametric Methods for Estimating Intrinsic Dimensions of Nonlinear Data Structures
This paper develops readily applicable methods for estimating the intrinsic dimension of multivariate datasets with performance generally in line with other dimension estimators, specifically noting that the correlation dimension variants perform favorably to the maximum likelihood method in terms of accuracy and computational efficiency.


Weighing schemes in multivariate data analysis
A collection of methods will be presented, designed to reflect special purpose or features in data. Many chemometric methods can be viewed as an application of special weighing schemes of the type
Analysis of multiblock and hierarchical PCA and PLS models
It is recommended that in cases where the variables can be separated into meaningful blocks, the standard PCA and PLS methods be used to build the models and then the weights and loadings of the individual blocks and super block and the percentage variation explained in each block be calculated from the results.
Multi-way Analysis with Applications in the Chemical Sciences
This work focuses on the development of models for three--way one--block data analysis with a focus on the Tucker3 model, which combines three-way component analysis with regression models to solve the problem of rank reduction in multi--way data analysis.
PLS regression, PLS path modeling and generalized Procrustean analysis: a combined approach for multiblock analysis
A situation where J blocks of variables are observed on the same set of individuals is considered in this paper. A factor analysis logic is applied to tables instead of variables. The latent
Scatter plotting in multivariate data analysis
The classical favourites in chemometrics, scatter plots, are looked into more deeply and some criticism based on recent literature references is formulated for situations of principal component analysis, PARAFAC three‐way analysis and regression by partial least squares.
