Curve Fitting Example With curve_fit() Function in Python

    The SciPy API provides a 'curve_fit' function in its optimization library to fit the data with a given function. This method applies non-linear least squares to fit the data and extract the optimal parameters out of it. 

    In this tutorial, we'll learn how to fit the curve with the curve_fit() function by using various fitting functions in Python. 

    We'll start by loading the required libraries.

from numpy import array, exp
from scipy.optimize import curve_fit
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt 
 
 

Regression Example with SGDRegressor in Python

    Applying the Stochastic Gradient Descent (SGD) method to the linear classifier or regressor provides the efficient estimator for classification and regression problems. 

    Scikit-learn API provides the SGDRegressor class to implement SGD method for regression problems. The SGD regressor applies regularized linear model with SGD learning to build an estimator. A regularizer is a penalty (L1, L2, or Elastic Net) added to the loss function to shrink the model parameters. The SGD regressor works well with large-scale datasets. 

    In previous post, we learned how to classify data with SGD classifier in Python and you can find it here.

    In this tutorial, we'll briefly learn how to fit and predict regression data by using Scikit-learn's SGDRegressor class in Python. The tutorial covers:
  1. Preparing the data
  2. Training the model
  3. Predicting and accuracy check
  4. Boston dataset prediction
  5. Source code listing
   We'll start by loading the required libraries.

Curve Fitting Example with leastsq() Function in Python

    The SciPy API provides a 'leastsq()' function in its optimization library to implement the least-square method to fit the curve data with a given function. The leastsq() function applies the least-square minimization to fit the data. 

    In this tutorial, we'll learn how to fit the data with the leastsq() function by using various fitting function functions in Python. 

    We'll start by loading the required libraries.

from numpy import array
