rms.curv: Relative Curvature Measures for Non-Linear Regression

Description Usage Arguments Details Value References See Also Examples

Description

Calculates the root mean square parameter effects and intrinsic relative curvatures, c^theta and c^iota, for a fitted nonlinear regression, as defined in Bates & Watts, section 7.3, p. 253ff

Usage

1
rms.curv(obj)

Arguments

obj

Fitted model object of class "nls". The model must be fitted using the default algorithm.

Details

The method of section 7.3.1 of Bates & Watts is implemented. The function deriv3 should be used generate a model function with first derivative (gradient) matrix and second derivative (Hessian) array attributes. This function should then be used to fit the nonlinear regression model.

A print method, print.rms.curv, prints the pc and ic components only, suitably annotated.

If either pc or ic exceeds some threshold (0.3 has been suggested) the curvature is unacceptably high for the planar assumption.

Value

A list of class rms.curv with components pc and ic for parameter effects and intrinsic relative curvatures multiplied by sqrt(F), ct and ci for c^θ and c^ι (unmultiplied), and C the C-array as used in section 7.3.1 of Bates & Watts.

##Parameter effects: c^theta x sqrt(F) = 0.2121
##        Intrinsic: c^iota  x sqrt(F) = 0.092
