Welcome to Representative Sampling of Heterogeneous Materials and Processes - Theory of Sampling (TOS)


Sampling is an essential part of academic R&D, technological and industrial processes preceding analysis, and analytical results must be representative of the original lot and materials they are supposed to characterise. From lot to analysis, the inherent mass-reductions span 1:10E3 to 1:10E12 making it far from trivial how this can be carried out in a fully valid and documentable fashion. The Theory of Sampling (TOS) is the only necessary and sufficient framework with which to be able to design, perform and validate representative sampling process for all types of materials in science, technology and industry.

Important information concerning PhD courses We have over some time experienced problems with no-show for both project and general courses. It has now reached a point where we are forced to take action. Therefore, the Doctoral School has decided to introduce a no-show fee of DKK 5,000 for each course where the student does not show up. Cancellations are accepted no later than 2 weeks before start of the course. Registered illness is of course an acceptable reason for not showing up on those days. Furthermore, all courses open for registration approximately three months before start. This can hopefully also provide new students a chance to register for courses during the year. We look forward to your registrations
