OPTREG is a computer program which provides stepwise multiple regression analysis and optimization of a user defined function by the geometric simplex method. Both optimization and regression are performed interactively. This gives the user visibility and quick response, as well as a high degree of control over the optimization and regression procedures. Because of the fine control over the optimization algorithm which is available, OPTREG is particularly well suited to optimization of a function which is expensive to evaluate. OPTREG is programmed in Fortran IV, and operates on the CDC 6600 under the Kronos Interactive Timesharing (KIT) operating system. This document is the user manual for the OPTREG program. The OPTREG features are described, examples are given, and KIT control card sets performing the various OPTREG options are provided.
