Mathematica to FindFit for multiple data set

  1. Mar 5, 2013 #1
    After conducting my experimental work I will have a number of sets of data.

    It is easy to use Mathematica to find a fit of just one set, but I would like to fit all sets at once as they are too many to do them all ate once.
    They will all be fitted by the same function say y=ax+b, every set having a different value of a and b.

    How do I do this?
    Thanks in advance.

    Without a concrete specific example it is perhaps difficult to know exactly what the answer should be.

    Usually if you want to "do the same thing to a collection of items" Map[] is the solution.

    Map[FindFit[#,a x+b,{a,b},x]&,{data1,data2,data3}]

    may do what you want.
