Reciprocal transformation, Advanced Statistics

Reciprocal transformation is a transformation of the form y =1/x, which is specifically useful for certain types of variables. Resistances, for instance, become conductances, and at times become rates. In some cases the transformation can lead to linear relationships, for instance, airways resistance against lung volume is non-linear but airways conductance against lung volume is linear.
