I have always thought that regressions has been too complicated in Maple. The Fit command is too fiddly ie you have to specify too many things and it is easy to get it wrong plus the statistical output you get is far from mainstream ie you dont get t-values, p-values, R, R^2, Adj R^2 etc etc.
I have therefore designed a new procedure called Reg() which only needs one input and that is a datamatrix.<img src="/view.aspx?si=129021/regression_sm.jpg" alt="Regression in Maple" align="left"/>I have always thought that regressions has been too complicated in Maple.

<p>The worksheet demonstrates the use of Maple to compare methods of unconstrained nonlinear minimization of multivariable function. Seven methods of nonlinear minimization of the n-variables objective function f(x1,x2,.,xn) are analyzed:</p>
<p>1) minimum search by coordinate and conjugate directions descent; 2) Powell's method; 3) the modified Hooke-Jeeves method; 4) simplex Nelder-Meed method; 5) quasi-gradient method; 6) random directions search; 7) simulated annealing. All methods are direct searching methods, i.e. they do not require the objective function f(x1,x2,.,xn) to be differentiable and continuous. Maple's Optimization package efficiency is compared with these programs. Optimization methods have been compared on the set of 21 test functions.</p><img src="/view.aspx?si=1718/SearchPaths2.PNG" alt="Comparison of Multivariate Optimization Methods" align="left"/><p>The worksheet demonstrates the use of Maple to compare methods of unconstrained nonlinear minimization of multivariable function.

http://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=4854&ref=Feed
LibLip is a Maple toolbox, which provides many methods to interpolate scattered data (with or without preprocessing) by using only the data itself and one additional parameter - the Lipschitz constant (which is basically the upper bound on the slope of the function). The Lipschitz constant can be automatically estimated from the data.
LibLip also provides approximation methods using locally Lipschitz functions.
If the data contains noise, it can be smoothened using special techniques which rely on linear programming. Lipschitz constant can
also be estimated from noisy data by using sample splitting and cross-validation.
In addition LibLip also accommodates monotonicity and range constraints. It is useful for approximation of functions that are known to be monotone with respect to all or a subset of variables, as well as monotone only on parts of the domain. Range constraints accommodate non-constant bounds on the values of the data and the interpolant.<img src="/view.aspx?si=4854/image.jpg" alt="LibLip - multivariate scattered data interpolation and smoothing" align="left"/>LibLip is a Maple toolbox, which provides many methods to interpolate scattered data (with or without preprocessing) by using only the data itself and one additional parameter - the Lipschitz constant (which is basically the upper bound on the slope of the function).

http://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=4849&ref=Feed
RanLip is a toolbox for generation of nonuniform random variates from arbitrary Lipschitz-continuous distributions in Maple environment. It uses acceptance/ rejection approach, which is based on approximation of the probability density function from above with a "hat" function. RanLip provides very fast preprocessing and generation times, and yields small rejection constant. It exhibits good performance for up to five variables, and provides the user with a black box nonuniform random variate generator for a large class of distributions, in particular, multimodal distributions.<img src="/view.aspx?si=4849/ranlib.jpg" alt="RanLip - black-box non-uniform random variate generator" align="left"/>RanLip is a toolbox for generation of nonuniform random variates from arbitrary Lipschitz-continuous distributions in Maple environment.
