### General 2D taylor surfaces from axial behaviour and discrete points

I have a problem as follows: I have a nonlinear function, f(x,y), for which I (numerically) know the axial behaviours, f(x,y0) and f(x0,y), where x0 and y0 are constants. I can calculate discrete ...

I am trying to understand an example in my stats course notes, the example relates to calculating the best value for the next experiment. The function of the line is very simple: $$ln(Y_i) = ... 1answer 31 views ### Second order least squares problem with one parameter I want to fit a set of measured data x_i and y_i to the expression:$$ \beta^2 + \beta x_i = y_i  $\beta$ is my only free parameter. Although this is a really simple expression, the standard ...
I have a series of observations, measurements made at various times $t$. I now need to determine the most likely value of $R$ (distance) using the model below. The guide says I should find the value ...
The problem statement is as follows. Minimize $||g(X\beta)-y||^2$ with respect to $\beta$ where $g(\cdot)$ is some non-linear function, $y$ and $\beta$ are column vectors. General linear least ...
