## There are two main methods for least squares ellipse ...

**There are two main methods for least squares ellipse fitting:**

1) Minimise algebraic distance, i. e. minimise sum(F(x)^2) subject to some constraint, where F(x) = x'Ax b'x c

This is a linear least squares problem, and thus cheap to compute. There are many different possible constraints, and these produce different fits.

**fitellipse by Richard Brown supplies two:**

[z, a, b, al] = fitellipse 1.0(x, 'linear')

[z, a, b, al] = fitellipse [fitellipse1.0.exe](x, 'linear', 'constraint', 'trace')

See published demo file for more information.

2) Minimise geometric distance - i. e. the sum of squared distance from the data points to the ellipse. This is a more desirable fit, as it has some geometric meaning. Unfortunately, it is a nonlinear problem and requires an iterative method (e. g. Gauss Newton) to solve it. This is implemented as the default option in fitellipse - 0MB. If it fails to converge, it fails gracefully (with a warning), returning the linear least squares estimate used to derive the start value

[z, a, b, alpha] = fitellipse 1.0(x)

plotellipse(z, a, b, alpha) can be used to plot the fitted ellipses
