<> Elena said Oops, my bad. I omitted to state that d1=0. Would you have any suggestions on how to estimate the non-linear model I illustrated? No, the model Y = c_0 + c_1 X1 + c_2 a^d2 X2 is still underidentified, even with the restriction that removes the alpha^0 term. Consider sysuse auto, clear forv c2 = 0.75(0.05)1.2 { nl (price = {c0} + {c1} * mpg + `c2' * {alpha}^2 * weight) nlcom `c2' * ([alpha]_cons )^2 } As you can see, there is a locus of c2 and alpha values that render the same product (c2 * alpha^2), so the data cannot identify c0, c1, c2, alpha from three data vectors: iota, mpg, weight.
