    sentence structure

    Hello everyone,
    I need to translate the definition of chemometrics into Chinese, but feel confused about the preposition phrase in it which is underlined. Is "the science of" omitted before "process"? What does "the state" refer to? Could you help me analyze it? Thank you in advance.

    Chemometrics is the science of relating measurements made on a chemical system or process to the state of the system via application of mathematical or statistical methods.

    Re: sentence structure

    The following is my understanding, which is subject to the teachers' approval here.

    Chemometrics is the science of relating (A) to (B).
    Chemometrics is the science of relating (measurements made on a chemical system or process) to (the state of the system).

    Not a teacher.
