Abstract:

The most important aspects encountered in the body of this study are summarized The approach to the collocation model formally differs from that found in the existing literature The existing formulas are generalized so that they can apply to nonlinear models and include the option to weight any number of parameters Formulas are given to allow for rigorous iterative solution in conjunction with the general weighting of parameters Expressions for some new variance-covariance matrices and all combinations of covariance sub-matrices are derived.
