Abstract:

The maximum likelihood approach suggested by H. Chernoff was extended to multiple mass spectra levels using a new theoretical model. Limited tests of the new results were disappointing. The major deficiency of the model is that the error variance is assumed to be a constant independent of intensity level which is not in accordance with observed data. An alternative, simpler, but more empirical approach is suggested to handle this problem.
