How to guess initialization parameters for non-linear curve fitting with nlinfit?

17 ビュー (過去 30 日間)
I'm trying to use fit the data using this equation:
gaussFit = @(beta, stepFit) (beta(1).*(( ((stepFit./beta(2)).^4)/(1+((stepFit./beta(2)).^4))).*exp((-1).*(stepFit./beta(3))).*cos( (((2*pi).*stepFit)./beta(4)) + beta(5))));
initials = [-0.000006, 0.07, 0.06, 0.12, 0.15];
coeffs = lsqcurvefit(gaussFit, initials, stepFit, avgSPResp2);
(Data attached)
But it is giving me a staight line (which I'm guessing is because the initials are way off compared to the actual fit parameters. However, I've tried to estimate the parameters as much as possible looking at the data.
How do I address this issue?

I am also curious to know why you call your model function "gaussFit", when it does not look at all like a Gaussian model.

Hi, Aindrila, guessing the initial start value is always a difficult task since the local optimization algorithms are adopted in most of curve fitting tool or commond,i.e. lsqcurvefit, “Luck + experience” is the current approach, or other way you may try is to use some packages which can performance global optimization calculation,refer the result below:
Root of Mean Square Error (RMSE): 0.0688616729634862

Thank you. Which package did you use for the global optimization calculation?

Maybe by doing a Gaussian fit first, it would be easier to guess what the beta(i) parameters should be. You can do a Gaussian fit using gaussfitn (Download).
z=@(x) D + A*exp( -0.5 * (x-mu).' * inv(sig) *(x-mu) );
hold on
xlabel 'stepFit'
ylabel 'avgSPRResp2'
hold off
