SegRegA :   segmented regression with breakpoint as well as generalized S-curve, Power curve, Quadratic and Cubic functions.
Totally free download of software

Summary:

The SegRegA computer program (calculator) is designed to perform a segmented regression analysis, but in addition it offers the opportunity to apply S-curve, Power function, quadratic and third degree regressions.
The last three have an increased versatility by applying an exponential transformation of the data by assuming a range of exponents and selecting the one that produces the best fit. Thus, the exponent is optimized.
The cubic regression uses the technique of inversed matrices and determinants to obtain the least squares result.

An example of the application of the generalized cubic regression can be found in the article: "Applying SegRegA to the annual average temperature trend from 1900 to 2020 in the Netherlands resulting from global warming: analysis by segmented linear regression types and curved functions such as the S-curve, Power curve, generalized quadratic and cubic regressions".

                                                Examples of generalized cubic regressions :

wheat yield
              and soil salinity
 
 
wheat yield
              and soil salinity


potato yield
              and soil salinity
The equation in the potato example (to the left) is found by a transformation raising X to the power 0.5 so that W = X ^ 0.5 and then performing a cubic regression of Y on W
with the result:
Y = 0.537 W ^ 3 - 4.70 W ^ 2 + 11.2 W + 1.84 and hence:
Y = 0.537 X ^ 1.5 - 4.70 X + 11.2 X ^ 0.5 + 1.84
which is now no longer a third degree (cubic) equation.
