Some new algorithms are presented for fitting mathematical models to multiple-response experiments. These algorithms give estimates of the parameters in a user-defined predictor model, and also estimate the parameters of a Gaussian model of the observational error distribution. The development is based on Bayes theorem, and provides a natural extension of known least-squares estimation methods. Allowance is made for missing values of responses, which occur frequently in practical work.
