[R] Fitting a sine wave using solver

I have several sets of oscillation data and would like to estimate the
parameters of a sine function to each set (and hopefully automate
this). A colleague provided an excel sheet that uses solver to minimize
the RSS after fitting the sine function to each data set, but this
cumbersome and difficult to automate. Is there a method in R for
fitting a given sine function to a supplied data using maximum
likelihood estimation (or minimizing the RSS). Thanks in advance.
