On parameter-effects arrays in non-linear regression models. (English) Zbl 0774.62065

Summary: Formulas for new three- and four-dimensional parameter-effects arrays corresponding to transformations of parameters in nonlinear regression models are given. These formulae make the construction of the confidence regions for parameters easier. An example is presented which shows that some care is necessary when a new array is computed.
