Description

'LL.4' and 'LL2.4' provide the four-parameter log-logistic function, self starter function, names of the parameters and, optionally, first and second derivatives for a faster estimation.

  LL.4(fixed = c(NA, NA, NA, NA), names = c("b", "c", "d", "e"), ...)

  l4(fixed = c(NA, NA, NA, NA), names = c("b", "c", "d", "e"), ...)
  
  LL2.4(fixed = c(NA, NA, NA, NA), names = c("b", "c", "d", "e"), ...)  

Arguments

fixed

numeric vector. Specifies which parameters are fixed and at what value they are fixed. NAs for parameter that are not fixed.

names

a vector of character strings giving the names of the parameters. The default is reasonable.

...

Additional arguments (see llogistic).

Details

The four-parameter log-logistic function is given by the expression

f(x) = c + \frac{d-c}{1+\exp(b(\log(x)-\log(e)))}

or in another parameterisation (converting the term \log(e) into a parameter)

f(x) = c + \frac{d-c}{1+\exp(b(\log(x)-\tilde{e}))}

The function is symmetric about the inflection point (e).

Value

See llogistic.

Note

This function is for use with the function drm.
