Here is a list of points.

In[1]:=

This finds the values of c and d that give the best linear approximation to points.

In[2]:=

Out[2]=

This plots the line together with points.

In[3]:=

This finds the values of c, d and e that give the best quadratic approximation to points.

In[4]:=

Out[4]=

This shows the quadratic together with points.

In[5]:=

Here is a trigonometric polynomial of degree .

In[6]:=

This finds the values of the parameters that give the best fit of trigpoly to points.
