Least-Squares Fitting of a Hyperplane

October 20, 2002


A method is developed for fitting a hyperplane to a set of data by least-squares, allowing for independent uncertainties in all coordinates of each data point, and including an error analysis.

Note: This paper is adapted from a technical report I wrote as a graduate student in the Department of Physics, University of California, Berkeley, in 1976.
