Comparison of linear and

non-linear regression for adsorption of low concentration of BF dye.

Fit of the

non-linear regression model to adult mortality was significant ([F.

Non-linear Regressions Hypotheses linear [[beta].

Starting from equation (4), the parameters A and B were estimated by means of a non-linear regression.

We then applied the SLS model, in which the 3 parameters A, B and C of equation (5) were estimated by means of a non-linear regression.

To explore the potential of each of the 6 P additions, the full non-linear regression model (Eqn 5) was fitted for each one.

O&S], a non-linear regression model (Eqn 6), similar in form to Eqn 5, was employed:

MOR showed evidence of juvenile wood influence in both the radial profiles and the non-linear regression results.

The effectiveness of the non-linear regression technique described in this study is greatly enhanced by the clear establishment of a plateau area in the mature wood zone.

By

non-linear regression, equation 5 is used to fit the curve drawn in figure 5 to experimental data, yielding [k.

It runs the

non-linear regression in parallel looking for convergence.

Behnken[89] used optimum two level designs and

non-linear regression to estimate polymer reactivity ratios.
