Abstract : Nonlinear least squares problems, and measures of nonlinearity are discussed. Some measures of nonlinearity due to Beale (1960 are introduced), and the behavior of these measures is examined using certain specific examples. The effect of using transformations of parameters to reduce the nonlinearity measures is investigated.
