The least-squares fitting of functions to data can be done in Maple with eleven different commands from four different packages. The CurveFitting and LinearAlgebra packages each have a LeastSquares command; the Optimization package has the LSSolve and NLPSolve commands; and the Statistics package has the seven commands Fit, LinearFit, PolynomialFit, ExponentialFit, LogarithmicFit, PowerFit, and NonlinearFit, which can return some measure of regression analysis.
In this webinar, Dr. Lopez will illustrate the use of, and interaction between, these commands.
