Based on your description of your problem, Jorge is correct. If you want to know more you need to say why what he says does not work. You seem to think you need a grid search, but based on what you say that is not true: -nl- should be perfectly fine for that optimization problem, though you probably need some good starting values. -- Maarten -------------------------- Maarten L.
