st: Notation of the Negative Binomial Model |

I am a little confused on the notation of the Negative Binomial Model. I want to express the equation such as the variables are used by the stata command nbreg Let say that I want to estimate this: nbreg y x1 x2 x3 (1) where y: dependent variable; xs: explanatory variables. My confusion starts when I look at the notation on books that usually write it in general terms as: lamda = E[ yi | xi ] = exp(xi’Beta) Where: E[ yi | xi ] : the expected mean of y conditional on xi. The latter express in matrix form. Regarding my model (1), my question is can I write this: y= exp(b0+ b1*x1 + b2*x2 + b2*x2+e) where: bs: beta parameters; e: random error Thank you in advance.
