THE DATA FITTING PROBLEM
Also known as The Least Squares Problem
When modelling data, scientists often want to fit an analytical model to their experimental data. In this case an experiment has provided some -coordinates that have a growth curve shape, i.e., initially increases quickly with , thens tails off to some maximum value. The scientists in this study have suggested three possible functions to model this behaviour:
The scientists have specified the number of data points and their coordinates in an AMPL ??? LINK data file =regression.dat=. The scientists want to know which of the suggested functions provides the best fit to the data.
