Re: Creating a dimensionless index

Hi bobbym, I see no problem with removing one or two outposts!

Re: Creating a dimensionless index

Hi toitu;

I think you already have enough in the two fits already provided. The last one is like the icing. The third one has been resisting any polynomial or rational fit that I can come up with. From a numerical point of view I am done but it seems that the statisticians have already solved this problem in the general case. I have been reading up on their methods and so far it has been slow going.

I will need more time. Please hold on.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.
