Function lsNORM is used for optimizing regenerative-dose signal data from a number of grains (aliquots) according to the least-squares normalisation (LS-normalisation) procedure outlined by Li et al. (2016) using an iterative scaling and fitting procedure.

The LS-normalisation procedure for growth curve optimization involves the following steps:

(1) Fit standardised regenerative-dose signals from all of the aliquots;

(2) Re-scale the individual growth curve from each aliquot using a scaling factor. The scaling factor for each aliquot is determined in a way such that the sum of squared residuals is minimized. Each aliquots is treated individually, and different scaling factors are calculated for different aliquots.

(3) Iterate the fitting (step 1) and re-scaling (step 2). The iterative procedure is performed repeatedly until there is negligible change in the relative standard deviation of the normalised growth curve data.

Return an invisible list that contains the following elements:

### Example 1:
data(SARdata)
# Use only the first five aliquots of SARdata.
Data <- SARdata[1:40,]
res_lsNORM <- lsNORM(Data, model="gok")
res_lsNORM$norm.SARdata
### Example 2 (not run):
# data(BIN)
# obj_pickBIN <- pickBINdata(BIN, Position=1:48, Grain=0,
# LType="OSL", view=FALSE)
# obj_analyseBIN <- analyseBINdata(obj_pickBIN, nfchn=3, nlchn=20)
# lsNORM(obj_analyseBIN$SARdata, norm.dose=300)
