I have been using an oscilloscope more at work, and I would like to learn more about analysis and curve fitting, rather than just be at the mercy of analysis software on the computer or the tablet. I'm an electrical tech.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

But there are dozens of flavors of analysis, and I don't know which one I should study. most of the time simple trig and algebra are good enough, but some of the measurements are pretty out there in terms of finding the function to fit the data.

Which branch of analysis would be the best place for me to start? I've had math up to calculus.

Thanks for the help,

Jim
