Figure 2.

Parameter estimation. Illustration of peak parameter estimation. The figure displays a well-resolved peak in the region <a onClick="popup('http://www.biomedcentral.com/1471-2105/13/291/mathml/M18','MathML',630,470);return false;" target="_blank" href="http://www.biomedcentral.com/1471-2105/13/291/mathml/M18">View MathML</a>. In this example, the size of <a onClick="popup('http://www.biomedcentral.com/1471-2105/13/291/mathml/M19','MathML',630,470);return false;" target="_blank" href="http://www.biomedcentral.com/1471-2105/13/291/mathml/M19">View MathML</a> equals 33, i.e. there are 33 pairs {(xi,yi)} that enter a nonlinear least squares problem of the form (4). Under the assumption of an EMG model, the resulting fit is indicated by a solid line.
