I need to find a function $f(x)$ such that the following data points would fit on it: $$f(1) = 0 \\ f(2) = 0.5 \\ f(4) = 1.0 \\ f(8) = 1.5 \\ \cdots $$ and so on. So the pattern is every time $x$ ...
I'm currently working with data contained in $Y, X_1, X_2, \ldots, X_n$ and wish to fit it to the model: $Y = (1 + c_1X_1)(1 + c_2X_2)\ldots(1 + c_nX_n)$ where the $c_i$ are coefficients to be ...
Can I build a program that will tell me if a real world data set looks linear, logarithmic, exponential etc?
I have a bunch of real world data sets and from manually plotting some of the data in graphs, I've discovered some data sets look pretty much logarithmic and some look linear, or exponential (and some ...
