Dear R community,
this is probably a well-known topic to some of you, but I am not well into it
and would like some clarifications or even jus some suggestions.
I have a quadratic scalar field:
F(x,y)=K*exp(-(a*x^2+b*y^2+c*x*y))
I also have a random set of positive x,y values and related F(x,y) values.
It seems reasonable to estimate the parameters K, a, b, c with a linear regression,
using the log of both sides of the equation.
What worries me, though, is the interaction term, c*x*y.
Are there well-known issues on the application of linear regression to cases like this one?
Thanks in advance for your answers.
James
