**Multiple nonlinear fitting with
deconvolution**

(global analysis of several convolved measured curves, with arbitrary
model function(s). )

We acknowledge the contribution of the Hungarian National Science Foundation
under contract No. **OTKA T 019396**
to the development of this program.

**The program described here can
be used by everyone provided that the use will be mentioned in an acknowledgement
if results are published or sold.**
**(The
authors of the program would appreciate a note on the acknowledgement.)**

**If someone needed, we also offer
cooperation in using the program to treat scientific problems.**

The files in this directory contain the ** FORTRAN
source code** of the subroutine to perform multiple nonlinear
parameter estimation along with a driver program and necessary data files
provided as an example to use the subroutine to estimate 9 parameters of
a kinetic model from 13 different ultrafast kinetic curves. (For details,
see
the RPC paper.)

A remarkable feature of the program is that measured curves do not need to contain neither equidistant points, nor equal number of measured points. A statistical analysis of the parameters is also provided.
