Global Least-Squares Analysis of the IR Rotation-Vibration Spectrum of HCI
Journal of Chemical Education, v82 n1 p150 Jan 2005
Several data-analysis problems could be addressed in different ways, ranging from a series of related "local" fitting problems to a single comprehensive "global analysis". The approach has become a powerful one for fitting data to moderately complex models by using library functions and the methods are illustrated for the analysis of HCI-IR absorption spectra.
