We consider fitting a polyline with k joints under the min-sum criteria with respect to L1- and L2 -metrics, which are more appropriate measures than uniform and Hausdorff metrics in statistical context. We present efficient algorithms for the 1-joint versions of the problem and fully polynomial-time approximation schemes for the general k-joint versions.},\nJOURNAL = {International Journal of Computational Geometry and Applications},\nVOLUME = {16},\nPAGES = {97--116},\n}\n'
