96 Mathcad Worksheets for Data Fitting

K. Schittkowski: Report, Department of Computer Science, University of Bayreuth (2004)
Abstract: The purpose of the paper is to introduce a set of data fitting test examples in form of Mathcad worksheets. The availability of data fitting test problems is an important assumption to develop and test least squares codes, to learn how optimization routines behave, or to become familiar with implementation and user interface. The problems are taken from a collection of test examples for data fitting in dynamical systems.

The report contains a brief introduction and review on least squares methods, moreover a summary of 96 data fitting test problems that have been transferred to Mathcad and a detailed example. A particular advantage of executing these problems from Mathcad is the possibility to plot corresponding residuals easily.
