Is there a documentation in Stata which tells how iteration for a non
linear regression is done? I am having trouble with initializing the
parameters. I am hoping I will have a better idea to initialize the
parameters if I understand the iteration process.

Also, when I run a non linear regression model, the values of the
estimated parameters aren't returned. Isn't it a choke?
