Hello everyone,
I hope that someone can help me.
I'm trying to plot several points in the space and to fit them so I can get an mathematical formula like this topic "Fit and Plot a Polynomial Surface"
I want to get a quadratic polynomial so I'm trying to use 'poly22' function. This is my code:
X = [0; 1; 1; -1; -1; 0.3]
Y = [0; 1 ; -1; -1; 1; 0.5]
Z = [0.9; 0.3; 0; 0.2; 0.6; 1]
z = Z;
fitsurface=fit([X,Y],z, 'poly22','Normalize','on')
plot(fitsurface, [X,Y],z)
I obtained this results:
Linear model Poly22:
fitsurface(x,y) = p00 + p10*x + p01*y + p20*x^2 + p11*x*y + p02*y^2
where x is normalized by mean 0.05 and std 0.9028
and where y is normalized by mean 0.08333 and std 0.9174
p00 = 0.9097
p10 = -0.2332
p01 = 0.2645
p20 = -1.07
p11 = -0.02071
p02 = 0.5786
But I am not sure about them and the syntax.
Could you help me please?
Thank you a lot!

The syntax and code which you have used is correct. The above code will fit a 2nd degree polynomial to the given data points and this is what you need.
