Thanks log(wage)= alpha1*log(SUM(Yi*exp(alpha2*di)) whereas Yi=GDP, i=1,2,3...n di=distance , i=1,2,3.....n I have the variables (GDP dan distance) and I have to estimate the alpha1 and alph2. However, I could not solve it. it says its a nonlinear regression but I dont know how to solve it>> The sum part seems like a bit of a red herring. It looks like a linear combination inside a nonlinear regression. You probably want to look at -nl-, which does nonlinear least squares.
