The function, I am trying to fit to data is: $$y(x) = −(A+B)e^{−x/a_1} + 𝐴e^{−x/a_2} + Be^{−x/a_3}$$

this function is a little bit different to Is it possible to find initial parameters when fitting triple exponential term function to data?,

Here, we have $5$ parameters. In the post by JJacquelin he mentioned he prepared a "Triple exponential.docx". Does anyone know where I can find this document? And how can I get these paremeters?

Thanks.

Below is one example of data:

  • $\begingroup$ The parameters of this system are known to be very sensitive to the accuracy of the data. How accurate are the values of the data points? $\endgroup$ – g.kov Mar 10 at 9:56

By chance, I had this document.

As a very quick answer, I should try @JJacquelin's method just to get an idea about parameters $(a_1,a_2,a_3)$.

I should keep them fixed at these values and perform the linear regression $$y(x) = A\left(e^{−x/a_2}-e^{−x/a_1}\right) + B\left(e^{−x/a_3}-e^{−x/a_1}\right)$$ to get $(A,B)$.

Now, use all of that for a nonlinear regression.

Please, let me know if it works.
