Nonparametric Regression Estimation for Nonlinear Systems: A Case Study of Sigmoidal Growths

  title={Nonparametric Regression Estimation for Nonlinear Systems: A Case Study of Sigmoidal Growths},
  author={Atif Akbar and Muhammad Aman Ullah},
Sigmoidal growths are well approximated by the non-linear sigmoidal growth models including Richards (1959) Morgan et al (1975), Davies and Ku (1977) and Muller et al (2006) among many others. This article deals with the comparison of the nonparametric regression with the non-linear regression models in order to locate the better approximation for sigmoidal growths. To unwind the standard assumptions, nonparametric regression estimation is used for data analysis, which enables us to look at the… Expand

Locally Weighted Regression: An Approach to Regression Analysis by Local Fitting
Abstract Locally weighted regression, or loess, is a way of estimating a regression surface through a multivariate smoothing procedure, fitting a function of the independent variables locally and inExpand
Weighted Local Regression and Kernel Methods for Nonparametric Curve Fitting
Abstract Weighted local regression, a popular technique for smoothing scatterplots, is shown to be asymptotically equivalent to certain kernel smoothers. Since both methods are local weightedExpand

A New Generalized Logistic Sigmoid Growth Equation Compared with the Richards Growth Equation
The new sigmoid equation is more suitable when initial growth is believed to be generally close to exponential, when estimates of maximum relative growth rate are required, or for generic growth simulations. Expand

A Flexible Growth Function for Empirical Use
In the empirical approach the magnitudes of the constants in the fitted equations may be used to assess the importance in growth of experimentally controllable factors, but the constants themselves are not regarded as having any absolute significance for the theory of growth. Expand
Robust Locally Weighted Regression and Smoothing Scatterplots
Abstract The visual information on a scatterplot can be greatly enhanced, with little additional cost, by computing and plotting smoothed points. Robust locally weighted regression is a method forExpand
Bandwidth Choice for Nonparametric Regression
This paper is concerned with the problem of choosing a bandwidth parameter for nonparametric regression. We analyze a tapered Fourier series estimate and discuss the relationship of this estimate toExpand
