R Question

So my problem is quite simple, I want to plot the exponential regression of my data, so far what I've done was plot the polynomial regression :

`ggplot(data = mydataANOVA, aes(x = TpsenJour, y = PrptionJourAuDelaDe, color = Type_Contrat))+`

geom_point()+

geom_smooth(method ="lm", formula = y ~ poly(x,2))

I got the following plot :

The regression isn't exactly a good fit for the actual data but the data looked a lot like an exponential function so I used the logarithm of my data, I used the same code with the log of my data to get the following plot:

Which seemed to be an very accurate fit, so I wanted to compare the two regression models directly by plotting the exponential regression, but when i used the formula

`formula = y ~ exp(poly(x,2))`

Which is even less accurate than the first one. How am I supposed to get that polynomial exponential regression plotted with the confidence intervals. I managed to get the good regression on the regular plot function but not with the confidence intervals and not in ggplot2. Here is what I got for only one of the two curves:

How can I get the good regression on ggplot2 with the confidence intervals ?

Here is the data that I used on one of the 2 curves.

Thank you.

I had a smal problem with the answer of @Roland, where it would return an error, I think I've solved it. I simply had to add two lines : (I hope that by fixing my error I did not alter the originally predicted outcome)

`fact<-DF$fact`

fit <- lm(log(PrptionJourAuDelaDe) ~ poly(TpsenJour, 2) * fact, data = mydataANOVA)

fact<-c(rep('a',1000),rep('b',1000))

pred <- expand.grid(TpsenJour = seq(min(mydataANOVA$TpsenJour), max(mydataANOVA$TpsenJour), length.out = 1e3),

fact = unique(mydataANOVA$fact))

pred <- cbind(pred,

exp(predict(fit,

newdata = data.frame(TpsenJour = pred$TpsenJour),

interval = "confidence")))

ggplot(data = DF, aes(x = TpsenJour, y = PrptionJourAuDelaDe, color = fact)) +

geom_point() +

geom_ribbon(data = pred, aes(y = fit, ymin = lwr, ymax = upr, fill = fact), alpha = 0.3) +

geom_line(data = pred, aes(y = fit, color = fact))

I then get the following plot:

Answer

Do the fit outside of ggplot2:

```
fit <- lm(log(PrptionJourAuDelaDe) ~ poly(TpsenJour, 2) * fact, data = DF)
pred <- expand.grid(TpsenJour = seq(min(DF$TpsenJour), max(DF$TpsenJour), length.out = 1e3),
fact = unique(DF$fact))
pred <- cbind(pred,
exp(predict(fit,
newdata = data.frame(TpsenJour = pred$TpsenJour),
interval = "confidence")))
library(ggplot2)
ggplot(data = DF, aes(x = TpsenJour, y = PrptionJourAuDelaDe, color = fact)) +
geom_point() +
geom_ribbon(data = pred, aes(y = fit, ymin = lwr, ymax = upr, fill = fact), alpha = 0.3) +
geom_line(data = pred, aes(y = fit, color = fact))
```

Note that I wouldn't call this exponential regression. It's linear regression with a transformed dependent variable (in contrast to a non-linear model, which would need to be fitted with `nls`

). And its probably not the model I would use.
