The exponetial SAR regression model
s == z * log(a) + c
The format is: List of 8 $ name : "Exponential" $ formula : expression(s == z * log(a) + c) $ paramnumber: 2 $ paramnames : "c" "z" $ parLim : "R" "Rplus" $ fun : model function $ rssfun : Residual Sum of Squares function $ init : initial values calculation $ form : a formula object for further calculations
This model is convex non asymptotic. For further details and documentation please see the online documentation at http://mmsar.r-forge.r-project.org/
