Abstract

This work is concerned with an investigation into the practicalities of using ICP-MS data obtained from the analysis of ecstasy tablets to provide linkage information from seizure to seizure. The generated data was analysed using different statistical techniques, namely principal component analysis, Hierarchical clustering and artificial neural networks. The relative merits of these different techniques are discussed.
