In this paper, we address the problem of simple mixtures identification using a SAW sensor based e-nose. First, we propose a linearized form of the SAW sensor's response to mixtures. This equation is then used to set up a linear least squares problem whose residuals are suitable to identify the number of compounds present in a mixture thanks to a supervised learning algorithm.
