Rolfe, Timothy J.
Mathematics and Computer Education, v16 n2 p122-32 Spr 1982
A brief introduction to the broad field of curve-fitting is provided to help explain the reasoning behind least-squares data fitting, and also to provide useful equations for two functional forms of interest in chemistry. Appendices give program examples written in Fortran and detail the method of Guggenheim. (MP)
