Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi,

I've just been trying unsuccessfully to fit a polynomial to a large set of data in Matlab (1301 points). I want to fit a polynomial to the data so that I have a function with which to try and manipulate the data in different ways.

I have no problem fitting polynomials to much smaller sets of data. I know that other curve fitting options exist, such as the moving average. However, it is my understanding that they do not return a function which can be used (so it seems it is just for presentation).

Has anyone had any experience with this?

Thanks, :confused:

Harry

Do a search on the Mathworks web site, there is a bunch of code that can be looked at to help you along. Look in your numerical analysis text for Lagrange polynomials or spline curve fits.
