Title of program: POAGS Catalogue Id: AATU_v1_0 Nature of problem In some physical applications, sophisticated routines for parameter optimization fail to find a solution. For such ill-conditioned minimization problems, a safe way of finding a solution is to use a simple but quite slow grid-search procedure. The code POAGS (Parameter Optimization by Accelerated Grid Search) automatically searches for a set of parameters which yields the optimal least-squares fit to the data using an accelerated grid search; that considerably reduces the time needed to get the ...
