<p>lmfit - Levenberg-Marquardt least-squares minimization</p>
<p><b>lmfit</b> is a C library for Levenberg-Marquardt least-squares minimization and curve fitting. It is mature code, based on decades-old algorithms from the FORTRAN library MINPACK.</p>
<p>For fitting a data set {(x_i,y_i)|i=0,1,..} by a parametric curve f(x,t), see <b>lmcurve</b>(3).</p>
<p>For generic minimization of the Eucledian norm of parametric vector, see <b>lmmin</b>(3).</p>
<p>For an example how to use <b>lmmin</b>, see the source files <i>lmcurve.h</i> and <i>lmcurve.c</i>. Do not patch these files; copy and modify them to create your own, differently named version of <i>lmcurve_data_struct</i>, <i>lmcurve_evaluate</i>, and <i>lmcurve</i>.</p>
