Abstract : Although the prime motivation of this work has been a 'constrained' curve fitting of ionospheric electron density and collosion frequency profiles, the method proved to be an effective tool of more general applicability. It is for this reason that the author present this work apart from the particular ionospheric research program for which it was conceived. (Author)
