PAPAMICHAEL, Emmanuel M. e THEODOROU, Leonidas G.. Necessary auxiliary background for efficient use of an existing computer program of non-parametric fitting of nonlinear equations. Braz. arch. biol. technol. [online]. 2009, vol.52, n.2, pp. 437-448. ISSN 1516-8913. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1516-89132009000200022.
This work constituted a significant contribution for more efficient use of a valuable computer program of non-parametric fitting of nonlinear multiparametric equations to experimental data. However, prerequisite in this context was the transformation of nonlinear multiparametric equations into linear hyperplane forms before their incorporation within the computer program; this latter was decisive and a matter of proper programming practice. Herein, a series of widely used equations useful in different fields of chemical processes, in biochemistry and/or in biotechnology, along with their suitable transformations as well as the appropriate programming support are being reported.
