lspoly(X,Y,M)
function C = lspoly(X,Y,M)

%Input     - X is the 1xn abscissa vector
%             - Y is the 1xn ordinate vector
%             - M is the degree of the least-squares polynomial
% Output - C is the coefficient list for the polynomial

n=length(X);
B=zeros(1:M+1);
F=zeros(n,M+1);

%Fill the columns of F with the powers of X

for k=1:M+1
   F(:,k)=X'.^(k-1);
end

%Solve the linear system from (25)

A=F'*F;
B=F'*Y';
C=A\B;
