Given the ellipse , a random sample of uniformly distributed abscissae in the interval is generated. From these a set of ordinates is obtained by adding to each corresponding point on the ellipse a normally distributed error with mean 0 and standard deviation 0.1. The set of points thus obtained is used to estimate the parameters of the ellipse with the least-squares method.
