Self-Starting Nls Asymptotic Regression Model

Share:

Description

This selfStart model evaluates the asymptotic regression function and its gradient. It has an initial attribute that will evaluate initial estimates of the parameters Asym, R0, and lrc for a given set of data.

Usage

1
SSasymp(input, Asym, R0, lrc)

Arguments

input

a numeric vector of values at which to evaluate the model.

Asym

a numeric parameter representing the horizontal asymptote on the right side (very large values of input).

R0

a numeric parameter representing the response when input is zero.

lrc

a numeric parameter representing the natural logarithm of the rate constant.

Value

a numeric vector of the same length as input. It is the value of the expression Asym+(R0-Asym)*exp(-exp(lrc)*input). If all of the arguments Asym, R0, and lrc are names of objects, the gradient matrix with respect to these names is attached as an attribute named gradient.

lrc <- -3.2

getInitial(height ~ SSasymp( age, Asym, resp0, lrc), data = Lob.329)
## Initial values are in fact the converged values
fm1 <- nls(height ~ SSasymp( age, Asym, resp0, lrc), data = Lob.329)
