Subject [jira] Commented: (MATH-512) "GaussianFitter" could inherit from "CurveFitter"
Date Fri, 18 Feb 2011 16:41:38 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MATH-512?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12996505#comment-12996505
] 

Gilles commented on MATH-512:
-----------------------------

I did some more formatting clean-up. Also removed a trivial method that was used only once.
I don't know about profiles (I use "emacs" with some configuration that automatically indents
the code with the appropriate amount of space characters).

> Currently, the "GaussianFitter" class contains a "CurveFitter" instance (and delegates
most method calls to it) for the sake of being able to return a "GaussianFunction" instance
(from the call to the "fit" method).
> I think that it would clearer (in the context of the "fitting" package) that "fit" returns
an array of doubles (as "CurveFitter" does). The user can then easily create a "Gaussian"
function object, if needed.
> [Also, note that the "GaussianFitter" actually fits the sum of a constant and a Gaussian
function; thus the name is slightly misleading IMO.]
> I also think that "ParametricGaussianFunction" and "GaussianParametersGuesser" should
become inner classes of "GaussianFitter" (as this makes it clear what their use is).
