We typically think of fitting data with an approximating curve in the linear least squares sense, where the sum of the residuals in the vertical, or y, direction is minimized. The problem addressed here is to fit a Bezier curve to an ordered set of data in the total least squares sense, where the sum of the residuals in both the horizontal and vertical directions is minimized.

Higher order residual analysis for nonlinear time series with autoregressive correlation structures Lewis, Peter A.; Lawrance, Anthony J. (Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1985-12); NPS55-85-030The paper considers nonlinear time series whose second order autocorrelations satisfy autoregressive Yule-Walker equations. The usual linear residuals are then uncorrelated, but not independent, as would be the case for ...
Modeling of engine parameters for condition-based maintenance of the MTU series 2000 diesel engine Yue, Siew Peng (Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 2016-09);Condition-based maintenance (CBM) entails performing maintenance only when needed to save on resources and cost. Formulating a model that reflects the behavior of the marine diesel engine in its normal operating conditions ...
Lewis, Peter A. W.; Lawrence, A. J. (Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1990-04); NPS-55-90-11Both linear and nonlinear time series can have directional features, features which indicate that the series do not maintain identical statistical properties when the direction on the time scale is reversed. The main purpose ...
