Spatial statistics and NonlinearRegress


Hello,

(1) Has anyone out there done any MM work in spatial statistics? I'm
specifically interested in kriging.

(2) Is there a way to fit a piecewise function with NonlinearRegress?

e.g.

f[x_,a_,b_,c_]:=a + b(1-Exp[-x/c]) /; x<c; f[x_,a_,b_,c_]:=a +
b(1-Exp[-1]) /; x>=c;
data=Table[{i,f[i,0.2,5,25]+Random[Real,{-0.1,0.1}]},{i,30}];
NonlinearRegress[data,f[x,a,b,c],{x},{a,b,c}];

Doesn't seem to work because the df/dx doesn't exist at x=c.

Thanks!!
