I am trying to run the code below:
However I am getting the error:
Error using nlinfit>checkFunVals (line 649)
The function you provided as the MODELFUN input has returned Inf or NaN values.
Error in nlinfit>LMfit (line 620)
if funValCheck && ~isfinite(sse), checkFunVals(r); end
Error in nlinfit (line 284)
[beta,J,~,cause,fullr] = LMfit(X,yw, modelw,beta,options,verbose,maxiter);
How can I solve this issue

Hi Muhannad Fadhel,
From my understanding , your initial values of the parameters seems to be problem since you are using exponential terms
Using this answer, I changed the initial values to
[0.01, 1, 0.09, 0.0018, 0.1, 0.19, 0.1, 0.00001]
It doesn't give the Nan or Inf error but this might not be the best starting values you neeeded for your dataset.
