Fitting Surge Functions to Data
Gordon, Sheldon P.
PRIMUS, v16 n1 p81-96 Mar 2006
The problem of fitting a surge function to a set of data such as that for a drug response curve is considered. A variety of different techniques are applied, including using some fundamental ideas from calculus, the use of a CAS package, and the use of Excel's regression features for fitting a multivariate linear function to a set of transformed data. The results of the different approaches are contrasted and discussed. (Contains 10 figures and 2 tables.)
