Predicting simulated data for a known curve

I have hit a roadblock with a research problem and could really use your expertise. I have a pre-existing curve created by extrapolating known fitted experimental data. As shown below, the x-axis is, ...

Calculating uncertainty of predictions - standard error or error calculus?

I'm looking to create a calibration function for a lab instrument I have: $y = A + Bx$ Where $y$ is the "true" output and $x$ is the initial reading. I have a dataset of ~100 readings that I ...

is it possible to use an existing non-linear relationship (GAM) to estimate back one of the independent variable?

Hi I have used a set of data to estimate the relationship between v0 (response variable) and v1-v6 (independent variables) through a non-linear model using GAM. The model is fitted with data between ...

How can I make predictions for new samples in the same subject, conditional on one observation?

I have fitted a Bayesian multilevel model. Example: $$ Y \sim Normal(\mu, \sigma)\\ \mu = \alpha + \beta * time + z_{subject}\\ z_{subject} \sim Normal(\bar{z}, \sigma_z) $$ I have fitted this to some ...

Inverse Predictive Posterior

Suppose I have a parametric nonlinear model, say $$ y_i |\theta \sim N(f_{\theta}(x_i), \sigma^2) $$ with known form of $f_\theta$. We get data $d=(y_i,x_i)_{i=1,\ldots,n}$ and obtain posterior ...

Is it inappropriate to predict an independent variable using a linear model? [duplicate]

In an A-Level maths textbook that I am reading about least-squares regression, it states that a regression line should only be used to predict the dependent variable and not the independent variable. ...

If X can predict Y in regression, why isn't Y guaranteed to predict X?

Intuitively, if X can predict Y in a multiple linear regression model, $y$ = $\beta_0$ + $\beta_1$$X$ + $\beta_2$$Z$ + $e$ X and Y are associated. Since there's an association between them, why is ...
