How would I do a regression on a data set that follows a power curve? Also, a regression on a data set that follows a logarithmic scale? Thanks.

Hi,

there is currently no implementation of regression using a sum (or product?) of exponential basis functions available. What you can do is add the exp/log of everything and do standard polynomial/linear regression. This is in the end the same thing. The operator you might use for this is called Generate Function set.

Thank you for the quick response. Is there a thread that gives a tutorial on using polynomial regression? I have had issues when trying to model data with multiple independent variables.
