Title Paradigm shifts in dissolved organic matter understanding: The persistence of the overturned
The PARAFAC (parallel factor analysis) algorithm has revolutionized the way we treat excitation emission matrices (EEMs) of fluorescence spectrometry. Tensors that are under influence of Beer's law have a general notion of high inner complexity (Eigenvalues) resulting into infomation overlay. But this revolution took place several decades ago. What once was a buzz is now a new normal. Despite the wide application of this new normal, older techniques are still employed and used to corroborate research findings. Where, how and why shall be explored by the master candidate by means of a literature analysis.
You will also be asked to explore science philosophy and by this to shed light on the very fabric of what goes on in science.
