Nonlinear Regression with R. Series: Use R! ▷ Is unique because it approaches non-linear regression modeling through the functionality available in R, such. Currently, R offers a wide range of functionality for nonlinear regression. Part of the Use R book series (USE R). Download book PDF. Chapters Table of. The nonlinear regression model generalizes the linear regression model . The R function nls is used for estimating parameters via nonlinear.
The solution is to use self-starter functions. Self-starter functions render estimation in nonlinear regression almost as easy and unproblematic as for estimation in linear regression.
As pointed out by Watkins and Venables , it is possible to build up knowledge bases within R. Once a sensible self-starter function has been constructed for a nonlinear regression model, any future analyses based on this model become considerably easier. We believe that this potential of R has not yet been fully realised.
The primary collection of self-starter functions comes with the standard installation of R. We have listed these self-starter functions in Table B.
In this book, we will only focus on the built-in self-starter functions in the standard installation. How to create a self-starter function is the topic of Subsection 3.
This is the case for several of the built-in self-starters. For understanding the following material, it is a prerequisite to know what data frames, functions, lists, and vectors are and how to manipulate them in R.
The rate of decay is governed by the second parameter b the inverse decay constant.
In order to construct such a function, we manipulate Equation 3. Applying a logarithmic transformation on the right-hand side of the exponential model in Equation 3.
Therefore the linear regression model should be viewed only as a very crude approximation to the mean function on some transformed scale. Having boiled down the problem to a linear regression model is convenient because parameter estimation in this model does not involve any iterative procedure.
This line is needed in order to satisfy the requirement for the argument start in nls.

Fit this model to the two datasets btb and sts. Fit the extended exponential model to the dataset wtloss using the constructed selfstarter function.
In Subsection 3. Similarly, the mean function of the Michaelis-Menten model Equation 2. Fit this linear regression model to the dataset L.
Compare the parameter estimates to the summary output given in Subsection 2. In this chapter, we will go into more detail with the arguments and methods available for nls.
Together with the first author he has developed short courses on the subject of this book for students in the life sciences. Skip to main content Skip to table of contents. Advertisement Hide.

For multidimensional predictors, we will have to use other approaches, such as the one introduced in the next subsection.
The three vectors of parameter values are collected in a list that is then supplied as the only argument to expand.
