## analytical function

https://doi.org/10.1351/goldbook.A00332
A function which relates the measured value $$\hat{C}_{\text{a}}$$ to the instrument @[email protected], $$X$$, with the value of all interferants, $$C_{i}$$, remaining constant. This function is expressed by the following regression of the calibration results. $\hat{C}_{\text{a}} = f\left(X\right)$ The analytical function is taken as equal to the inverse of the calibration function.
