### Least-squares fit of explicit parabolic sheet to data points

For a given set of data points $$\{(x_i, y_i, z_i)\}$$ there exists some $$f_{ABC}(x,y)=Ax^2+Bxy+Cy^2$$ that minimizes $$\sum_i(f_{ABC}(x_i,y_i)-z_i)^2$$ $A$, $B$, and $C$ can be found quickly ...

### Plotting optimum as a function of parameter in the objective

I am trying to minimize a 2d function using scipy.optimize. Specifically I want to plot the minimum value of the function fun as a function of the parameter wjk. The problem is that I cannot pass wjk ...

### Solve ODE with non-negative and maximization constraints

My task is to solve $$\eta_k\frac{d^2C_k}{dz}(z)=-e_k, k = 1,2,3$$ $$C_k\ge0$$ $$C_1(0)=0, C_2(0)=A, C_3(0)=0$$ $$C_1(L)=B, \frac{dC_2}{dz}(L)=0, \frac{dC_3}{dz}(L)=0$$ with $$e_1 = -\beta_1-\beta_3$$ ...

### Minimize number of rectangles that cover all the points

I have a 2d distribution of moving points with known trajectories represented in a 640x480 image. Here is the initial state: I have to find the minimum number of rectangles with fixed dimensions (...
