**The existence theorem for the solution of a nonlinear least squares problem**

D. Jukić

###### Abstract

In this paper we prove a theorem which gives necessary and sufficient conditions which guarantee the existence of the global minimum for a continuous real valued function bounded from below, which is defined on a non-compact set.

The use of the theorem is illustrated by an example of the least squares problem.
