1. These parameters are the GLM versions. We start with these.
The GLM, ignoring error terms, is:
Y = logistic(Xb) = logistic(b0 + b1*x)
logit(Y) = Xb = b0 + b1*x
The Y value, here, is the probability p, so:
p = logistic(b0 + b1*x)
= 1 / (1 + exp(-[b0 + b1*x]));
logit(p) = b0 + b1*x
Reversing:
x = (logit(p) - b0) / b1
Or, reversing in full:
P = 1 / (1 + exp(-intercept - slope * X))
1 = P + P * exp(-intercept - slope * X)
-intercept - slope*X = ln((1 - P) / P)
intercept + slope * X = ln(P / (1 - P))
X = (ln(P / (1 - P)) - intercept) / slope
2. From an alternative formulation:
These parameters define a linear equation in logits,
L(X) = intercept + slope * X
The logistic function itself is
P = plogis(L) = 0.5 * (1 + tanh(L/2)) = 1 / (1 + exp(-L))
So that's
P = 1 / (1 + exp(-intercept - slope * X))
Comparing to Lecluyse & Meddis (2009)'s function,
p = 1 / (1 + exp(-k(X - theta)))
= 1 / (1 + exp(-k*X + k*theta))),
we have
k = slope
and
theta = -intercept/k = -intercept/slope
Comparing back to the GLM function:
intercept = b0
slope = b1
k = slope = b1
theta = -intercept/k = -b0/b1 [... since k*theta = -intercept]
3. We will have p = 0.5 when
0.5 = 1 / (1 + exp(-[b0 + b1*x]))
1 + exp(-[b0 + b1*x]) = 2
exp(-[b0 + b1*x]) = 1
-[b0 + b1*x] = 0
b0 + b1*x = 0
x = -b0/b1
= theta
