Refer to this answer from Star Strider:

You can fit any function using simple least squares regression. Just formulate your function (i guess you have already done that) in matlab, then make a cost function (least squares) and use fminsearch to optimize parameters c1 and c2

P = @(c, t) ... % your function

cost = @(c) sum((P(c,t) - p).^2);

% guess initial parameters

c_guess = [1 1];

% use fminsearch

c = fminsearch(cost, guess);

Cheers

Manuel
