Curve fittingΒΆ

Demos a simple curve fitting

First generate some data

import numpy as np
# Seed the random number generator for reproducibility
x_data = np.linspace(-5, 5, num=50)
y_data = 2.9 * np.sin(1.5 * x_data) + np.random.normal(size=50)
# And plot it
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
plt.figure(figsize=(6, 4))
plt.scatter(x_data, y_data)

Now fit a simple sine function to the data

from scipy import optimize
def test_func(x, a, b):
return a * np.sin(b * x)
params, params_covariance = optimize.curve_fit(test_func, x_data, y_data,
p0=[2, 2])


[3.05931973 1.45754553]

And plot the resulting curve on the data

plt.figure(figsize=(6, 4))
plt.scatter(x_data, y_data, label='Data')
plt.plot(x_data, test_func(x_data, params[0], params[1]),
label='Fitted function')

Total running time of the script: ( 0 minutes 0.073 seconds)
