Hi,
I need to write a function that would look something like this:
S <- function(b=betas){
expression(b[1] * f(b[2] * x * f(b[3] * x * f(...b[n-1] * x * f(b[n] *
x)))...)
}
Where n is the number of element in b.
Further I need to be able to evaluate S at some x numerically of course and
I need to use "deriv" and produce dS/dx such that I can evaluate it also at
some x.
I tried building the S expression manually to test the deriv (D) function,
evaluate them both and everything work's fine.
My trouble is automating the building of the expression S that is dependent
on the length of b.
Any suggestion are welcome.
Thanks in advance.
