[SciPy-User] [SciPy-user] Fit function to multiple datasets

Thanks, your solution works.

However, there are still three things (at least...) that I need to get my
head around:

- a quick test in which I vary the shape parameter (in one dataset) does not
give me sensible answers.  I have been more concerned with getting this
working than thinking about the actual answer.

- also for any given site, I will have an unknown ( in advance) number of
datasets but I should just be able to put them all into one array to pass to
the function and iterate through the array.

- how to weight the answer based on the length of each data set.

Thanks again,


code at present:
import numpy as np
from scipy import optimize

def gen_pdf(time, loc, scale, shape, arbit_multi):
    '''define the 3-param Weibull distn f(x) with arbitary positive

def solve(time, est_loc, est_scale, est_shape, est_arbit_multi):
    return (np.log(est_arbit_multi*(est_shape/est_scale))+

def objFunc(params, time, Q): 
    scale  =params[0] 
    shape = params[1] 

    res = [] 

    extra_params = params[2:].reshape(-1, 2) 
    for p_n, t_n, Q_n in zip(extra_params, time, Q):
        res.append(solve(t_n, p_n[0], scale, shape, p_n[1]) - np.log(Q_n)) 

    return np.hstack(res)**2 

time = np.linspace(1,n,n)
time_3 = time_1 = time_2 = time

a = gen_pdf(time, loc=-15.0, scale=10.0, shape=0.5, arbit_multi=100.0)
b = gen_pdf(time, loc=-10.0, scale=10.0, shape=0.8, arbit_multi=10.0)
c = gen_pdf(time, loc=-10.0, scale=10.0, shape=0.5, arbit_multi=25.0)

alldata= np.array((a,b,c))

est_loc = 0.0
est_scale = 1.0
est_shape = 1.0
est_arbit_multi = 1.0

est_loc_1 = est_loc_2 = est_loc_3 = est_loc

est_arbit_multi_1 = est_arbit_multi_2 = est_arbit_multi_3 = est_arbit_multi

p0 = [est_scale, est_shape, est_loc_1, est_arbit_multi_1, est_loc_2, 
est_arbit_multi_2, est_loc_3, est_arbit_multi_3] 
p1 = optimize.leastsq(objFunc, p0, args=([time_1, time_2,time_3], [a,b,c])) 
print p1
