3. Specificity is a special case of selectivity and generates a single nonzero element (in the calibration matrix), which lies on the diagonal. 4. A partial specificity can be defined when only the diagonal element in one row can practically be considered to have a nonzero value. A grade of specificity is numericaily determined by θa = n k=1 γaa − 1. γkk − γaa IV. FUTURE PERSPECTIVES Naturally, it is difficult to predict the evolution of a discipline as diverse as analytical chemistry. Table XIV indicates a summary of short-term future directions as garnered from the present interests and activities of researchers in the field.
