Fitting lines to points in the plane
We seek for lines of minimal distance to finitely many points in the plane. The distance between a line and a set of points is defined by the L^p-norm, 1\leq p\leq \infty, of the vector of vertical

TLDR
This paper presents an Orthogonal Distance Fitting of Implicit Curves and Surfaces of Least-Squares and Object Reconstruction from Unordered Point Cloud from the 2015 Conference of the European Academy of Sciences.
FITTING ELLIPSOIDS BY LEAST SQUARES
The data are n points yi in R m . The problem we solve in this paper is to find the least-squares best fitting ellip- soid to these points. An eigenvalue algorithm and an alternat- ing least squares
Geometrically L^p-optimal lines of vertices of an equilateral triangle
We consider the distances between a line and a set of points in the plane defined by the L^p-norms of the vector consisting of the euclidian distance between the single points and the line. We
Dominant point detection by variation of best fit vectors
Estimation of curvature commonly used to measure the points either they are dominant points to be retained or insignificant points to be discarded. High curvature estimation value for the points
