Given a nonlinear model expressed as an expression of the form
lhs ~ formula_for_rhs
and a start vector where parameters used in the model formula are named,
attempts to build the the
R function for the residual sum of squares.
As a side effect, a text file with the program code is generated.
This is a modeling formula of the form (as in
A named parameter vector. For our example, we could use start=c(b1=1, b2=2.345, b3=0.123) WARNING: the parameters in the output function will be used in the order presented in this vector. Names are NOT respected in the output function.
The (optional) name for the function that is generated in the file named in the next argument. The default name is 'myss'.
The (optional) name of a file that is written containing the (text) program code for the function. If NULL, no file is written.
R function object that computes the sum of squares of the
residuals of the nonlinear model at a set of parameters.
