Abstract:

In a previous paper Draper and Shaw, 1973, the authors provided a way of assessing nonlinearity in nonlinear estimation problems with n observations and p parameters via a function F barp,n-p, 1-alpha. This function measured the average deviation from linearity around the usual linearized 1-alpha F barp,n-p, a-alpha as a function of Fp,n-p,1-alpha, and demonstrate that the coefficients convey, in an intuitively sensible manner, information about the nonlinearity of the model.
