Curve Fitting and Parameter Estimation
Back to Portal
Maple has many tools for curve fitting and parameter estimation. Here, for example, we fit a polynomial to data.
There are tools in the CurveFitting and Statistics package for curve fitting. You can also create your own least-squares error function, and minimize it using the Optimization package.
The precise command and technique depends on the type of curve or model you are fitting. The table below gives a guide to the functionality, with links to worked examples.
Type of Equation or Model
Fit Head-Flow Rate Data to a Pump Curve
Black-box procedure with potential multiple regions, conditional statements, etc.
N-Channel Enhancement MOSFET Parameter Estimation
PV Diode Parameter Estimation
Chemical Kinetics Parameter Estimation
