How do I perform a linear least squares fit

조회 수: 448(최근 30일)
I would like to perform a linear least squares fit to 3 data points.
The help files are very confusing, to the point where i can't figure out whether this is a base function of Matlab, I need the curve fitting toolbox, optimization toolbox, or both.

You don’t need any toolboxes. Use polyfit (link) and polyval functions, or the mldivide (link) operator.

See attached polyfit demo. Adapt as needed. All you need is base MATLAB - no toolboxes.
For example
coefficients = polyfit(x, y, 1);
yFitted = polyval(coefficients, x); % yFitted will be at the 3 points where x is. There will be 3 yFitted values.
If you want a lot more points, you can pass in more x to polyval():
xFit = linspace(min(x), max(x), 1000); % 1000 points.
yFitted = polyval(coefficients, xFit);

Function to perform curve fitting using linear least squares:
Linear and polynomial fits are linear least square fits, while the other fits (power, exponential, logarithmic) are approximated by first linearizing the data.
