SplMod
Applications:
 Sums of 1parameter functions, such as convoluted exponentials in fast
decay processes;
 Optional global analysis of up to about 50 data sets with the same
decay constants (e.g., multiwavelength sets);
 Optional robust correction for response function in fast fluorescence
decay using standards [1].
 Running on a wide variety of computers.
Methods:
 fully automatic: no starting estimates needed for the number of
components or for their parameters;
 modified GaussNewton least squares, with intensive searches from many
starting points to find the global optimum;
 optional spline approximation of model functions [2,3] for faster
analyses (probably unnecessary with current computers).
