non-linear regression

1. "cheating" on non-linear regression

Hello Recently I have been struggling with multiple linear regression with gene expression analysis. With my methods I have found a few interesting transcripts that correlate with the data I'm studying. However, I know there are transcripts that may increase exponentially and those fit poorly...
2. My First Model

Hello, I am doing a Master's and I am at the dissertation stage, and have to write and test a model empirically. However I am not sure about the functional form: Y = A(a)^Z + B(b/c)^Y + D(d)^X I want to estimate the effect of a on y. However I don't think the effect will have an elasticity...
3. Do I have a non-linear regression?

Hello everyone, I want to start by saying that I don't have too much experience working with continuous dependent variables. I have worked more with Logistic regressions. I want to test if the numbers of Use of Force (UOF) a staff member of a mental clinic had in year 2014 predicts the...
4. Some non-linear regression equations

Hello , I have 4 predictor variables X1,X2,X3,X4 and one response variable Y . I need some non-linear regression equations for these variables . For example one of these equations is : Y=a1.(X1^a2).(X2^a3).(X3^a4).(X4^a5) I looking for at least 5 equations except the above equation . Thanks
5. 4PL Non-Linear Regression, Transforming observed y values

Good Afternoon, I'm currently teaching my self how to fit response curves, and have run into some trouble. I currently need assistance on utilizing proper methodologies to "massage" the observed y values. Is it wise to log transform the y values, knowing that this changes the vertical...
6. Non Linear Regression Stata

Hi everyone, Using Stata 11, I am trying to perform a nl regression that could take two writings depending on one indicator (t0 in this case) in order to estimate a, b and s: When t0=1 : nl (P= (choice^({a=0.2}-1))/(({b=0.2}^t0)*({s=0.2}^k)*(4000^({a=0.2}-1)))) When t0=0: nl (P=...
7. [Optimization – Solver] Good model fit, but wrong standard deviation coefficients

Dear reader, I am facing an optimization problem and, at this point, I need help from someone with more knowledge than me. My goal: For a non-linear regression method, I use the solver add-in function of Microsoft Excel to obtain the equation parameters by minimizing the sum of the squares...
8. How to assess Goodness-of-fit

I have fitted a set of data points to an exponential decay curve of the equation: y=A+Be^(-t). I wish to assess the quality of fit. Is it OK if I did a chi-squared test using X^2 = sum: (O-E)^2/E and then looked up the critical value?
9. Error propagation for non-linear regression parameters

Hi, I've been doing non-linear regression on some datasets using R. The regression outputs parameter estimation and parameter standard error (SE) for the three parameters a, n and k. I calculate the value for a new parameter f = n/k. I want to find the SE for f using error propagation. I...
