- vector of response data :
I perform parametric fits using custom equations
when I use this equation : y = yo + K *(1/(1+exp(-(a+b*ln(x))))) the
fitting result is OK
but when I use this more general equation : y = yo + K
*(1/(1+exp(-(a+b*log(x)+c*x)))) , then I get an aberrant curve!
I don't understand that... The second fitting should be at least as good
as the first one because when taking c=0, both equations are identical!
There is here a mathematical phenomenon that I don't understand!....could
someone help me????

it doesn't matter; all the basic issues raised by me and
by Albyn Jones still apply. If we are going to help you,
you need to provide more detail about what you tried in R
and more background on what you're trying to achieve in general.
As we both said, fitting a 5-parameter model to 5 data
points is nearly impossible. If you provide more detail
about your data and your broader goal, we might be able
