Hi Mira,

Have a look at the function Fit [1]. For instance, the online help and

points = {{0, 54}, {120, 56.5}, {230, 56}, {305, 54},
{340, 53}, {360, 52.7}, {378, 52.5}, {405, 52.5},
{443, 53}, {480, 53.5}, {510, 54}, {540, 54.7},
{570, 54.4}, {602, 56}, {643, 56.5}, {660, 56.5},
{685, 56.25}, {706, 56}, {727, 55.25},
{743, 55.5}, {756, 55.25}, {775, 55},
{787, 54.75}, {799, 54.5}, {814, 54.25},
{828, 54}, {845, 53.75}, {858, 53.5},
{877, 53.25}, {894, 53}, {923, 52}, {951, 53},
{983, 53.5}, {1014, 54}};

plotpoints = ListPlot[points, PlotStyle -> PointSize[0.02]];
Fit[points, {1, Sin[x/80], Cos[x/80]}, x]
plotline = Plot[%, {x, Min[points[[All,1]]], Max[points[[All,1]]]}];
Show[plotpoints, plotline];
