Abstract : The report examines the quality of the prediction equation that is the result of applying the least squares criterion to a log linear transformation of the learning curve and sizing slope function, X sub 1 = a(X sub 2, sup b). This function is characteristic of the statistical problem associated with a non linear relationship between the unknown parameters. (Author)
