[R] Non-linear regression with latent variable

If you have the "RSiteSearch" package installed, you can do the
nrow(nll <- RSiteSearch.function("nonlinear regression with latent"))
This just produced 8 hits for me. If this doesn't solve your
problem, you might try other search terms. If all those fail, you
could write your own likelihood function and use the "maxLik" package.
Hope this helps.
