{  version = 1.04; (* of fdr.p 1995 Jan 14 *)}

(* begin module describe.fdr *)
  fdr:  computes best values of sigma/D for f_D(r) fit of real data.

  fdr(histog: in, fdrp:in, outfile: out, output: out)

  histog:  output file from genhis.
  fdrp:  parameter file for fdr.
    sigma,sigmastep (reals): initial value and incremental increase in sigma.
    dim,dimstep (reals): initial value and incremental increase in D.
    temperature (real): Kelvin temperature of system.
  outfile:  writes best value of sigma/D and error in f_D(r) fit.
  output:  sends messages to the user.

              D-1      2       2
             r   exp(-r /2sigma )
  f (r) =  -----------------------
   D                       D D/2-1
           Gamma(D/2) sigma 2

  We compute the values of D, sigma that minimze the least-squares error
  between f_D(r) and the actual data read in from histog.
