HW#6 EGM6341 Spring 2009 Due: 3/17/09 From textbook by Atkinson pp185-194 1. #28a, 2. #35 (read p. 171 of the textbook, as well as notes, for “not-a-knot” condition;) 3. (Least square fit) In many applications, one wishes to correlate a dependent variable z to two or more independent variables, x and y. The simplest model is a linear fit z = a 0 + a 1 x + a 2 y Defining z i – (a 0 + a 1 x i + a 2 y i ) as the residual, one can determine the “best” values of the coefficients (a 0 , a 1 , a 2 ) by minimizing the sum of the square of the
