German term or phrase: Regressionsgerade
I need some help with this sentence, please!!! Again from the research paper on Echniacea:
"Von den vorgegebenen Prozentwerten p fuer die nichtphagozytierten Zellen -also im Sinne von Sterberaten - zum Zeitpunkt t wurden die Koeffizienten alpha und beta der Regressionsgeraden durch a und b geschaetzt."( somehow I can't type the Greek letters here).
I always had a tremendous respect for mathematical minds- please help me out here... is this beast simply a "regression line"??

English translation:regression line
Explanation:
Eurodic gives 'regression line' for 'Regressionsgerade' so I would say you were on the right lines. I regret to confess that I do not have a great mathematical mind!
