package org.apache.commons.math.estimation;

 * This interface represents an estimation problem.
 * <p>This interface should be implemented by all real estimation
 * problems before they can be handled by the estimators through the
 * {@link Estimator#estimate Estimator.estimate} method.</p>
 * <p>An estimation problem, as seen by a solver is a set of
 * parameters and a set of measurements. The parameters are adjusted
 * during the estimation through the {@link #getUnboundParameters
 * getUnboundParameters} and {@link EstimatedParameter#setEstimate
 * EstimatedParameter.setEstimate} methods. The measurements both have
 * a measured value which is generally fixed at construction and a
 * theoretical value which depends on the model and hence varies as
 * the parameters are adjusted. The purpose of the solver is to reduce
 * the residual between these values, it can retrieve the measurements
 * through the {@link #getMeasurements getMeasurements} method.</p>
