This book is of interest to researchers in universities, research centres and industries who are involved in measurements and need advanced mathematical tools to solve their problems, and to whoever is working in the development of these mathematical tools. Advances in metrology depend on improvements in scientific and technical knowledge and in instrumentation quality as well in a better use of advanced mathematical tools and in the development of new ones. In this book scientists from both the mathematical and the metrological fields exchange their experiences. Industrial sectors such as instrumentation and software, are likely to benefit from this exchange, since metrology has a high impact on the overall quality of industrial products and applied mathematics is becoming more and more important in industrial processes.
