NLSstAsymptotic {stats} R Documentation

## Fit the Asymptotic Regression Model

### Description

Fits the asymptotic regression model, in the form b0 + b1*(1-exp(-exp(lrc) * x)) to the xy data. This can be used as a building block in determining starting estimates for more complicated models.

### Usage

NLSstAsymptotic(xy)


### Arguments

 xy a sortedXyData object

### Value

A numeric value of length 3 with components labelled b0, b1, and lrc. b0 is the estimated intercept on the y-axis, b1 is the estimated difference between the asymptote and the y-intercept, and lrc is the estimated logarithm of the rate constant.
