# Iterations of Some Algorithms for Nonlinear Fitting

Requires a Wolfram Notebook System

Interact on desktop, mobile and cloud with the free Wolfram Player or other Wolfram Language products.

By dragging the starting point with the locator, you can see how three nonlinear fitting algorithms proceed and how many steps they need. The three algorithms considered are the Levenberg–Marquardt, Newton, and gradient methods.
