Or if you really want to investigate the *line* instead of some random
*points*, you may need something like:
> optimize(function(x, mod) predict(mod, data.frame(speed=x)), c(0,20),
This elaborates the ?loess example with the result object cars.lo (and,
of course is a bad example since the fit is monotone and solutions is
forced to the margin). Use maximum=FALSE for *a* minimum.
If you have several predictors, you either need to supply constant
values for those in optimize, or for simultaneous search in all use
optim or nlm.
