testing parallelism of does-response curves using nls()
Hi, I am trying to use F test or Chi-square test to test if 2 5-parameter (A, B, xmid, scal and H) logistic curves are parallel based on residual sum of squares. What's usually done is to first fit the 2 curves using a constraint (or global) model where all parameters are kept the same except for "xmid"; then fit 2 independent curves using unconstraint models where all 5 parameters

solve.QP with box and equality constraints
Dear list, I am trying to follow an example that estimates a 2x2 markov transition matrix across several periods from aggregate data using restricted least squares. I seem to be making headway using solve.QP(quadprog) as the unrestricted solution matches the example I am following, and I can specify simple equality and inequality constraints. However, I cannot correctly specify a constraint

Constraints in Quadprog
I'm having difficulty figuring out how to implement the following set of constraints in Quadprog: 1). x1+x2+x3+x4=a1 2). x1+x2+x5+x6=a2 3). x1+x3+x5+x7=a3 4). x1+x2=b1 5). x1+x3=b2 6). x1+x5=b3 for the problem: MIN (x1-c1)2+(x2-c2)2+...+(x8-c8)2. As far a I understand, "solve.QP(Dmat, dvec, Amat, bvec, meq=0, factorized=FALSE)" reads contraints using an element-by-element
