    new user and my math problem

    Hi
    My name is Anja and I joined here as I am not sure how to progress with a data/math problem I have and was hoping to find some help. I work as an air quality researcher and am not a mathematician and probably can join in here more with questions than answers (sorry).
    I have a set of results and according to literature the data should fit the following equation: ATN= -100 ln (α + (1-α) exp(-σ [BC])). I have a set of ATN and corresponding BC measurements but need to determine best fit α and σ. What's the best way to go about it?

    Thanks

    Anja

    I posted it in advanced maths topics as they seem to include other sciences - hope it's the right place... Also I included more info. Thanks

    Yes, specific questions should be posted in the sub-forum most appropriate to the topic being discussed. These "New Users" forums are mainly for introductions and welcomes.

    But no worries, I found your other post.

    See you around the forums.
