Examples and How To

Nonlinear Regression Workflow

Import data, fit a nonlinear regression, test its quality, modify it to improve the quality, and make predictions based on the model.

Weighted Nonlinear Regression

This example shows how to fit a nonlinear regression model for data with nonconstant error variance.

Pitfalls in Fitting Nonlinear Models by Transforming to Linearity

This example shows pitfalls that can occur when fitting a nonlinear model by transforming to linearity.

Nonlinear Logistic Regression

This example shows two ways of fitting a nonlinear logistic regression model.

Concepts

Nonlinear Regression

Parametric nonlinear models represent the relationship between a continuous response variable and one or more continuous predictor variables.
