Hi toitu;

I think you already have enough in the two fits already provided. The last one is like the icing. The third one has been resisting any polynomial or rational fit that I can come up with. From a numerical point of view I am done but it seems that the statisticians have already solved this problem in the general case. I have been reading up on their methods and so far it has been slow going.

I will need more time. Please hold on.
