Weighted and unweighted linear fit (Scripts) Publisher's description
This code fits makes a linear fit to a data set
This code fits makes a linear fit to a data set (using y =bx+a) where each data point
% has a different or constant standard deviation. Your data should have three or two columns.
% The first column should be the independent variable(x) and the second
% column should be the dependent variable(y). Column three should contain
% your standard deviations for each datapoint. In the situations where you
% do not specify a column three, the code assigns a weight of one to all
% data points and this corresponds to the regular linear fits.
%data = 3 columns; column 1 = x, column2 = y and column 3 = standard dev.
%Result.slope= b; Fitted slope
%Result.Intercept = a; Fitted intercept
