Appendix E

E.1 FITTING EQUATIONS TO DATA

Engineers, technologists, and scientists frequently collect paired data in order to understand the behavior of the system. Numerical methods of analysis have been employed to solve a wide range of steady and transient state problems. The fundamentals are essential in the basic operations of curve fitting, approximation, interpolation, numerical solutions of simultaneous linear and non-linear equations, numerical differentiation, and integration. These requirements are greater when new processes are designed.

Various types of software packages are now readily available for scientists and engineers. They must fit a function or functions to measure data that fluctuate, which result from random error of ...
