# Curve fitting project

Exercises that approximate the cosine curve from $–\pi/2$ to $\pi/2$ with best-fitting parabolas satisfying varioius constraints. Uses the Hilbert space of square integrable functions with its natural inner product (integral of product of functions). Computes each approximation along with its squared error. Solutions available to instructors from author on request.
