The problem is: I have 4 datasets (X1,Y1), (X2,Y2),(X3,Y3),(X4,Y4) for a certain distribution. Each set, (Xi, Yi), contains about 400 data and was obtained from a different observational experiment. So it is assumed that different datasets should have different error variance. I am trying to use nonliner regression to obtain an empirical function from the four data sets. As the variance in each data set is unknown, it is impossible to obtain a weighting coefficient if i put them together. Is there any other solution for this case ? The empirical function is a*X^b/(1+exp(c*X)). I will appreciate very much if some could give me some support. Thank you! Sam
