The Use of Non-Linear Least Squares Analysis.
Copeland, Thomas G.
Journal of Chemical Education, v61 n9 p778-79 Sep 1984
Nonlinear least squares computer programs are extremely valuable in fitting complicated equations to experimental data. They are easy to use and free students and teachers from the tedium of trying to derive linearized forms to complicated equations. The use of these programs (available for most medium/large scale computers) is discussed. (JN)
