    'Fittings' :)

    Hi all

    The problem I've been is: given the following series {104.800003051758, 129.888000488281, 155.281280517578, 180.998153686523, 207.058044433594, 233.481521606445, 260.290435791016, 287.507843017578, 315.158325195313}

    and need to find a function that fits, the most accurate one I've found so far is 80*(1+log(n)), but it isn't good enough

    Hey HSeries.

    You will have to decide what kind of function you wish to "fit" to and then construct an orthogonal set of basis functions to project to.

    The simplest would be a polynomial of degree n but you could use another function if you wanted to.

    yeah actually it's just curiosity, because I'm granted those values belongs to a 'crafted' series and I'd like to find that one
