FAQ
A small correction to my previous email:
You actually specify the following call to lm:

y <- sin(x)/x
lm(z ~ y - 1)

to make sure that the intercept is not estimated.

You reall have only one parameter in your model, c = a/b. You
can't
identify both a and b from your model, therefore, you should fit
the
linear model: lm(z ~ c* sin(x)/x)

Subject: [R] Robust nonlinear regression - sin(x)/x?
Dear all

Since I did not receive any answer to my general question (?),
let me ask a concrete question:

How can I fit the simple function y = a*sin(x)/b*x?

This is the code that I tried, but nls gives an error:

x <- seq(1,10,0.1)
y <- sin(x)/x
plot(x,y)
z <- jitter(y,amount=0.1)
plot(x,z)
df <- as.data.frame(cbind(x,z))
nf <- nls(z ~ a*sin(x)/b*x, data=df,
start=list(a=0.8,b=0.9), trace = TRUE)

I have followed the Puromycin sample which works fine:
Pur.wt <- nls(rate ~ (Vm * conc)/(K + conc), data = Treated,
start = list(Vm = 200, K = 0.1), trace = TRUE)

Do I make some mistake or is it not possible to fit sin(x)/x?

Best regards
Christian

Dear R experts

This is a general question:
Does R have functions for nonlinear robust regression,
analogous to e.g. LTS?

1, an abstract to generalize LTS for nonlinear regression
models, see: http://smealsearch.psu.edu/1509.html
2, an AD-model builder, see: http://otter-
