data fitting with php

Hi php pros,

I have an array containing n numbers and want to fit them to e.g. a
polynomial function f(x), x=1...n.

Is there a php script / library for doing that?

I basically wish to do curve fitting to my data array, directly in

Ideal would be something like polyfit in MatLab.
One possibility would be to involve a c++ program doing the data
fitting. Export the array as a dump file from php, execute the
compiled c++ polynomial fitting file program calling the dump file and
saving the result, and then open the result file in php. Thats of
course not so elegant ...

Thanks for any help.

there are COM objects (sold) which you can invoke from within PHP,
other than that, writing your own spline model seems a challenge just
to avoid the inelegance of using an existing c++ program.
dont reinvent the wheel eh!
by f(x) do you mean a cubic polynomial?

I meant with f(x) a polynomial of any order g.

I have done it now with an external c++.

Here's the current result:
with order g=5.

Would be good to include other fitting methods like spline,
interpolation etc.
Do libraries exist for that in php? Or c++ ...?
