The statistical method of finding the "best" mathematic model to describe one variable as a function of another.

regression analysis

(in statistics) a test in which the size of one variable (the dependent variable) is dependent on another (the independent variable). Often the relationship is a linear one, enabling a line of best fit to be drawn on a SCATTER DIAGRAM.

In this paper, we have proposed an efficient hierarchical genetic algorithm to tackle the automatic curve fitting problem. The method introduces a novel hierarchical gene structure for the chromosomal representation that permits the optimization of all free degrees of a linear model based on RBFs.
Some basic mathematical concepts and definitions and the curve fitting problem from noisy data points with rational Bezier curves are described in Section 3.
A solution to the curve fitting problem will provide a method of this sort.
