Fit mixtures of one or more Gaussians to the curve formed by a chromatogram profile, using nonlinear least-squares.

min_R_squared = 0.5, method = c("guess", "random"),

`chromatogram` |
a numeric vector corresponding to the chromatogram trace |

`n_gaussians` |
the number of Gaussians to fit |

`max_iterations` |
the number of times to try fitting the curve with different initial conditions; defaults to 10 |

`min_R_squared` |
the minimum R-squared value to accept when fitting the curve with different initial conditions; defaults to 0.5 |

`method` |
the method used to select the initial conditions for
nonlinear least squares optimization (one of "guess" or "random");
see |

`filter_gaussians_center` |
true or false: filter Gaussians whose centres fall outside the bounds of the chromatogram |

`filter_gaussians_height` |
Gaussians whose heights are below this fraction of the chromatogram height will be filtered. Setting this value to zero disables height-based filtering of fit Gaussians |

`filter_gaussians_variance_min` |
Gaussians whose variance falls below this number of fractions will be filtered. Setting this value to zero disables filtering. |

`filter_gaussians_variance_max` |
Gaussians whose variance is above this number of fractions will be filtered. Setting this value to zero disables filtering. |

a list with six entries: the number of Gaussians used to fit the curve; the R^2 of the fit; the number of iterations used to fit the curve with different initial conditions; the coefficients of the fit model; and the fit curve predicted by the fit model.
