It works if trace = TRUE in the original call to nls that creates the
object being profiled. Try
example(Bennett5, package = "NISTnls")
pr2 <- profile(fm2)
Dieter: If you fitting a conventional three parameter logistic model
or a four parameter model you may want to try the self-starting model
functions in the nls package (SSlogis or SSfpl). Those functions use
a parameterization that has proven to be very stable. Often the
difficulties in assessing the variability in parameter estimates is
due to a poorly chosen parameterization for the model.
If you would be willing to send me one of the problematic data sets I
could try to assess what is going wrong for you.
