Re: Levenberg-Marquart code


On the web page maintained by Lukas Finschi, you will find code for the L-M
algorithm written in C with an accompanying calling routine via Mathlink.
Not exactly what you were looking for, but it is ready to run from Mathematica 3.0.1
(or S-Plus) and has the advantage of being fast.

The URL is: http://www.ifor.math.ethz.ch/~finschi/Papers/LevMar.html
