Electron mobility data

Share:

Description

The Thurber data frame has 37 rows and 2 columns.

Format

This data frame contains the following columns:

y

A numeric vector of electron mobility values.

x

A numeric vector of logs of electron density values.

Details

These data are the result of a NIST study involving semiconductor electron mobility. The response variable is a measure of electron mobility, and the predictor variable is the natural log of the density.
