Curve fitting method in javascript

Installation

$ npm install ml-levenberg-marquardt

API Documentation

This algorithm is based on the article Brown, Kenneth M., and J. E. Dennis. "Derivative free analogues of the Levenberg-Marquardt and Gauss algorithms for nonlinear least squares approximation." Numerische Mathematik 18.4 (1971): 289-297.

In order to get a general idea of the problem you could also check the Wikipedia article.

Example

// import library
import LM from 'ml-levenberg-marquardt';
// const LM = require('ml-levenberg-marquardt').default;

// function that receives the parameters and returns
// a function with the independent variable as a parameter
function sinFunction([a, b]) {
  return (t) => a * Math.sin(b * t);
}

// array of points to fit
let data = {
  x: [
    /* x1, x2, ... */
  ],
  y: [
    /* y1, y2, ... */
  ]
};

// array of initial parameter values
let initialValues = [
  /* a, b, c, ... */
];

// Optionally, restrict parameters to minimum & maximum values
let minValues = [
  /* a_min, b_min, c_min, ... */    
];
let maxValues = [
  /* a_max, b_max, c_max, ... */    
];

const options = {
  damping: 1.5,
  initialValues,
  minValues,
  maxValues,
  gradientDifference: 10e-2,
  maxIterations: 100,
  errorTolerance: 10e-3
};

let fittedParams = LM(data, sinFunction, options);
