[R] panel.curve

I am trying to fit experimental points by exponemtial curve

my data are stored into a matrix data

the first column is the geographical point (a number = data[,1] ) ( I would like to plot several graphes at the same time) the second column is the time of measurement (x in the plot) the third column is a speed (y in the plot)

if we assume the point are folowing this exponential behaviour y=exp(a+bx) then log y = a+ bx
we then can determine the coefficient a and b by a linear regression with the lm function and get them as following : coef ( lm (log(y)~x)) then I can use those coefficient

if I plot ln y = ax+b , everything goes fine  

xyplot(log(data[,3])~data[,2]|data[,1],panel=function(x,y){panel.xyplot(x,y)+panel.abline(coef(lm(y~x)))}) and I get perfect linear regression of my points

...But I would prefer to plot the exponential curves (y=exp ( a*x + b )).. I tried the following formula :



and I get :
Error in model.frame(formula, rownames, variables, varnames, extras, extranames, :

        variable lengths differ (found for 'x')

... I don't really now what goes wrong and how to correct that Maybe I am wrong in the use of the pannel.curve function ....

Do anyone know something about that ?

Thanks by advance
