Manuscript Title: Least square fitting with one explicit parameter less
Authors: Bernd A. Berg
Program title: FITM1
Catalogue identifier: AEYG_v1_0
Distribution format: tar.gz
Journal reference: Comput. Phys. Commun. 200(2016)254
Programming language: Fortran 77 with standard extensions (tested with g95 on a Mac).
Computer: Any which supports a Fortran 77 compatible compiler.
Operating system: Any with a Fortran 77 compatible compiler.
RAM: 1 Mbyte
Keywords: Fitting, Curve Fitting, Least Square Fitting.
Classification: 4.9.

Nature of problem:
Least square minimization when one of the free parameters is the multiplicative normalization of the fitting function.

Solution method:
Conversion of the normalization constant into a function of the other parameters and the data, resulting into one explicit fitting parameter less.

Running time:
Less than 1 second on modern PCs
