Several strategies for the analysis of isochronal and isothermal spectra as well as complete three-dimensional (313) spectra are outlined and applied to data of (glass forming) liquids and polymers. Conduction-free loss spectra are calculated using a compact solution of the Kramers-Kronig transformation and an approximation based on partial derivativeepsilon'/partial derivative In omega. The usefulness of the dielectric modulus for data analysis is also evaluated. Apart from partial derivativeepsilon'/partial derivative In omega. other useful derivatives in the frequency and temperature domain are treated as well. Finally, we describe the evaluation of 3D-relaxation maps by means of 3D fitting. (C) 2002 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
