Hello, non-linear fitting is a quite huge topic from fitting simple
nonlinear functions to neural-net based stuff. If you have too many
points, be aware of the robustness of the procedure. In short if you have
too many points at some part of the data, that will be overrepresented
biasing the final parameter estimates. Softwares you can try:
"GNU Octave is a high-level language, primarily intended for numerical
computations. It provides a convenient command line interface for solving
linear and nonlinear problems numerically, and for performing other
numerical experiments using a language that is mostly compatible with
"Grace is a WYSIWYG 2D plotting tool for the X Window System and M*tif.
Grace runs on practically any version of Unix-like OS. " (it also has
curve fitting capabilities)
Gnuplot itself can do some nonlinear fitting, type "help fit" in its
Hope it helps:
