Hi,Tim
Thanks so much. I will try it.

For instance, my z data is in a 13x19 matrix that looks like this: > z=[0 0 0 0 0 1 0 1 0 1 0 0 0 > 0 0 0 1 1 0 0 0 0 1 1 0 0 > 0 0 1 0 0 2 1 1 0 0 1 0 1 > 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 1 0 1 1 0 > 0 0 0 0 0 1 2 2 3 5 0 0 0 > 0 1 2 4 1 5 13 4 3 9 0 2 0 > 1 1 8 10 10 14 22 23 9 10 0 0 0 > 5 4 6 15 21 21 24 24 17 16 0 1 0 > 4 9 12 24 20 28 34 30 13 19 0 1 0 > 2 5 13 17 31 31 35 39 20 18 0 0 0 > 2 6 13 22 28 34 46 35 13 20 0 1 1 > 5 7 12 14 31 27 39 27 14 12 0 1 0 > 6 6 10 17 18 32 28 27 17 6 1 0 1 > 3 4 7 10 15 18 17 11 11 11 2 0 1 > 1 1 7 8 12 14 8 9 4 2 1 0 1 > 1 1 1 3 3 6 5 5 3 0 0 0 1 > 1 1 0 3 1 0 1 1 0 1 0 3 0 > 1 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 1 2 0 0 1 > 0 1 1 0 0 0 0 1 1 0 0 0 2] > > to make this 13x19 matrix into x, y, z variables that can be used with the surface fitting tool, do this: > [x,y]=meshgrid(1:13,1:19); > x=x(:); > y=y(:); > z=z(:); > > now call the surface fitting tool: > sftool > > choose x, y and z for the inputs > > choose custom equation from the drop down menu and paste in this equation: > a1*exp((xx0)^2/(2*sigmax^2)(yy0)^2/(2*sigmay^2)) > > click 'Fit' > > if the equation doesn't fit at all, change the fit options: > change all of the StartPoints to 10 > > after doing this you should get these results: > General model: > f(x,y) = a1*exp((xx0)^2/(2*sigmax^2)(yy0)^2/(2*sigmay^2)) > Coefficients (with 95% confidence bounds): > a1 = 39.23 (37.56, 40.9) > sigmax = 2.332 (2.232, 2.431) > sigmay = 2.725 (2.61, 2.841) > x0 = 6.585 (6.486, 6.684) > y0 = 10.64 (10.52, 10.75) > > Goodness of fit: > SSE: 1723 > Rsquare: 0.924 > Adjusted Rsquare: 0.9227 > RMSE: 2.668 > > > To make this much faster you can choose File/Generate MFile and it will make a function called createSurfaceFit, that can be run with any data that is named x, y and z and is in the proper format.
