FitUtil
Overview
FitUtil is a Dyalog Unicode Workspace (v16) that contains useful functions related to curve fitting. The regressions performed are:
1. Linear: Y' = a + b×X 2. Exponential: Y' = a × exp(b×X) 3. Power: Y' = a × X*b 4. Logarithmic: Y' = a + b×ln(X) 5. Parabolic: Y' = a + b×X + c×X*2 6. Cubic: Y' = a + b×X + c×X*2 + d×X*3 7. Linear through origin: Y' = 0 + b×X 8. Parabolic through origin: Y' = 0 + b×X + c×X*2 9. Cubic through origin: Y' = 0 + b×X + c×X*2 + d×X*3 10. Weibull: Y' = a × exp(b×X*c)
The first 9 curve fittings are a least square fit using the APL's domino operator (⌹). The Weibull regression is obtained by iterations and may not converge to a solution all the time. The main functions are FIT and TFIT. Both will perform 10 different curve fittings on a set of X and Y values. The function TFIT will removed the non significant points by performing a Student test on the data.
The results are stored in a global nested variable called ∆FIT or ∆TFIT depending of the main function used. FIT and TFIT will present the results of the curve fittings in the APL session, the function SHOW will present them graphically using the variables ∆FIT or ∆TFIT. It uses WPF and the Syncfusion libraries.
The usage of the functions is as follow:
x FIT y ⍝ Normal regression x TFIT y ⍝ Will remove the non significant points before performing the regressions
For example for the following values of X1 and Y1:
X1 0.5497 0.817 0.999 1.19 2.78 5.53 10.21 16.59 22.56 99.7 200 1000 1500 5000 Y1 19.191 17.672 17.063 16.613 14.602 13.25 12.418 11.859 11.512 9.75 9.008 7.309 6.836 5.765
The following is written in the session:
