I want to estimate the parameters of a function of general form $y = a \cdot x^b$. I applied a log-log transformation to obtain a linear function of the form $\log y = \log a + b \times \log x$. I have fitted the linear model in MATLAB.
MATLAB computes the goodness of a fit in terms of sum of squares error (SSE) and (adjusted) R bar. I want to report these numbers but they are probably meaningless given that in fact $\log a$ and not $a$ has been estimated. How do I fix this?
