Abstract : A simple and effective procedure is given for finding the least square minimum, and the most probable values of the least squares vector without the necessity of explicitly finding normal equations and inverting the resulting matrix. The method is an application of an N step gradient procedure and is especially well suited for use with high speed digital computers.
