Abstract: POLFIT is an interactive program fitting the function
f(x) to data input as X,Y pairs, where f(x) has the
function form
f(x) = a1*x**p1 + a2*x**p2 + . . . ;
the powers p are arbitrary real numbers specified by the
user; and the returned coefficients provide the best
least-squares fit.
Data are input under user-specified format(s) from one
or two files. The powers and the number of coefficients
are specified interactively, and the program returns the
fitted coefficients and the goodness-of-fit parameter
The program includes a line-printer/terminal plotting
option allowing display of the data and the fitted
Media (Service Charge Code): Write-Up (AA), One RX01 Diskette (KA)
