power exponential curve
||last updated: 2003-07-20
In curve fitting the
power exponential curve (you know a better name?) is used for the so-called 'geometric fit'.
logarithm of the curve
is the prime function approximation.
The curve can be generalized to:
A = e and b = 1/2 gives the Stirling
curve which is an
approximation for the factorial 1).
Stirling was the one to discover this relation.
1) Often an expression is given as:
