Global least squares fit in MATLAB?
Is it possible to simultaneously fit multiple data sets, with some imposed constraints relating the fit parameters across the different data sets?
Yes, of course. You might have to use a general nonlinear solver
NLSSOL can handle a least squares formulation with general linear/

Is there anyone can help me with the following problem in Matlab?
Suppose I have a function:
where N is number of data points, x,y,z are known experiment data (1D arrays with same size) which can be read from file. Will need to find a,b,c so the above function is minimized.
Any help is highly appreciated.

...Least-squares fitting a square pulse
I am trying to fit a square pulse to data in the least-squares sense in Matlab. The parameters that are being optimized are the height, start, and end - x(1), x(2) and x(3) in the program, respectively. However, the least-squares program is only varying the height, for some reason. Why is this occurring? How else could I fit a square pulse using least-squares?
Although in this example the pulse would be easy to fit by inspection, for the purpose of my project, it is not an option.

I was wondering if anyone can help me to figure out how to add equality and inequality constraints to the linear parts of a separable least squares fit. I saw fminspleas is able to do it for the nonlinear fit parameters (using transformations from a constrained problem to an unconstrained one), but not for the linear fit parameters. Here is my code for the separable least squares fit. Thanks.

I am working on an inverse problem where I need to use least squares fitting.

Well, rest assured, the code will be less than 10 lines
long. But, *which* 10 lines will depend on more details.
What do you know about this problem?

dear Gnuplot users,
I am using the following command to fit a set of data:
fit f(x) 'dataset' via a,b
then I get the value of a and b with only one decimal digit like a=0.1,
how can I get five decimal digits like a=0.00001, b=0.91112 ?

"get the value" --- where? All the outputs of 'fit' I'm aware of print
with a good deal more than 1 significant digit. Well, unless all the
others following it *are* exactly zero, that is.

I have the following data file:
Now I want to do a least square fit on the data of the first and
second column. The data in the first-column represent the x-values, the
data in the second column represent the y-values. I don't need the rest
of the columns.
Now I now that x and y are related somehow as:
y = a/(x**b)
and I want to find a and b as accurate as possible.
The file that plots my data to an .eps file is at
If I don't specify an initial value for b_sob, the fit fails. If I do
specify a starting value of 0.9 the fit works, but the result is not
satisfying as can be seen from the .eps file at
I have also tried to fit on log($2)=a-b*log($1) and then plot
exp(a)/(x**b) but this didn't give me satisfying results either.
How can I increase the quality of my fit?
