Nonlinear Regression in R
Violeta I. Bartolome
Senior Associate ScientistPBGB-CRILv.bartolome@cgiar.org
Nonlinear Regression
An extended linear regression techniquein which a nonlinear mathematical modelis used to describe the relationshipbetween the response variable and thepredictor variables.
A nonlinear regression model is a modelthat contains at least one of theparameters in a nonlinear form
Example

LinearizedNonlinear Model
The linearizedform of the example is:
X Y
logloglog
ββββ++++αααα====
The normality assumption for the error termwill not be appropriate for the linearizedform.
Hence, if a nonlinear model is assumed tobe appropriate for the data, the nonlinear model should be used for the analysisinstead of the linearizedform.
Parameter Estimation
Iterative procedures are used
May require users to supply initialestimates of parameters
User should know the biologicalinterpretation of the parameters toprovide intelligent initial values.
The function getInitial() may also beused.

Sample data
Severity represents the number of lesions on the leaf surface,standardized as a proportion of the maximum.
