in analysis
The functional (not statistical) relationship for the chemical measurement process, relating the expected value of the observed (gross) signal or response variableMath - text to the analyte amount Math - text. The corresponding graphical display for a single analyte is referred to as the calibration curve. When extended to additional variables or analytes which occur in multicomponent analysis, the 'curve' becomes a calibration surface or hypersurface.
