Hi All,

I have to draw a best fit line in a helix that will tell the axis of the helix and a
curve that will tell the curvature of the helix. I suppose I have to do linear and
non linear regression in 3D space for this ?

I have coordinates in following structure

'data.frame': 24 obs. of 3 variables:
$ x: num 17.5 18.3 21.0 23.1 23.2 ...
$ y: num 40.0 43.5 43.8 41.0 43.0 ...
$ z: num 37.3 36.0 38.7 37.1 33.9 ...
 

I could draw the helix but could not do regression. Please help ! Thanks in anticipation.

-Param
