- (simple) linear regression (fit a straight line to X-Y data)
- multiple linear regression (fit a response variable as a linear combination of multiple X variables)
- polynomial regression (fit a response variable as a polynomial in a predictor variable)
- non-linear (univariate) regression (fit a specified function in X to X-Y data)
- logistic regression (fit a linear logistic model in one or more X variables to binary Y)
