determine the values of 2 unknowns through nonlinear regression and predict value of equation
3 views (last 30 days)
I have to determine the value of 2 unknowns a and b through nonlinear regression and predict the value of the equation y for x=2.6
the equation is y=((a+sqrt(x)./(b.*sqrt(x))).^2). i looked through my class pdf's and i found nothing related to non linear regression and searched on youtube found nothing helpful . Any clues please ? or links to helpful locations websites or mathworks that might contain info . I don't know where to search anymore .

There are several ways to do nonlinear regression for a given model in MATLAB. If you have the optimization toolbox, then you can use lsqcurvefit(): https://www.mathworks.com/help/releases/R2020a/optim/ug/lsqcurvefit.html or lsqnonlin(): https://www.mathworks.com/help/releases/R2020a/optim/ug/lsqnonlin.html
fit(): https://www.mathworks.com/help/releases/R2020a/curvefit/fit.html from Curve fitting toolbox can also be used.
