That's what we want. Now, however, you can feed f(x) to LSQNONLIN and run its LevenbergMarquardt routine. > > Hi Matt J, > > I will summarize my function here again and wish to receive feedback! > > >Given two 3D point clouds (source point cloud (SPC) and target point cloud (TPC)).

With this routine, it requires we provide a vectorvalue function f(x)=[f{1}(x),f{2}(x),...,f{n}(x)]' for LSQNONLIN.

Toan,
I think neither option is a good one because, as I have already told you, it looks like the Ri parameters are unnecessary. Also, I can give you a solution right now that you can verify, by direct subsititution, will globally minimize the function you have written with F(Ri,Ti)=0. The solution is
Ri=eye(3) Ti=UiVi
for all i=1..m
