    Fit An Asymptotic Function


    An asymptotic function increases or decreases until it approaches some fixed value (i.e., the asymptote) at which point it levels off. The form of an asymptotic function is:

    y = a + b/x

    where a and b are parameters whose values are to be computed by the fitting process. Here are the NLREG statements to fit this function:

    Title "Asymptotic function:  Y = a + b/X";
    Variables X,Y;            // Two variables: x and y
    Parameters a,b;           // Two parameters to estimate: a and b
    Function Y = a + b/X;     // Equation to be fitted to data
    Plot;                     // Plot equation and data with grid lines
    Data;
    [ data goes here ]
    

    Here is a plot generated by NLREG showing the function fitted to a a set of values.
