```Hi,

Needs["Statistics`NonlinearFit`"]

?NonlinearRegress

"NonlinearRegress[data, model, vars, params] searches for a
least-squares fit \
to a list of data according to the model containing the variables vars
and \
the parameters params.  Parameters may be expressed as a list of symbols
or a \
list of lists.  When expressed as a list, a parameter may be specified
with \
starting value(s) and bounds in one of several different ways: {symbol,
\
start} or {symbol, min, max} or {symbol, start, min, max}, where start
can be \
single value or a list of two values. The data can have the form {{x1,
y1, \
..., f1}, {x2, y2, ..., f2}, ...},  where  the number of coordinates x,
y, ... \
is equal to the number of variables in the  list vars.  The data can
also be \
of the form {f1, f2, ...}, with a single coordinate assumed to take
values 1, \
2, ....  The Method option specifies the LevenbergMarquardt (default), \
Gradient (steepest descent), Newton, QuasiNewton or Automatic search
methods. \
The Automatic method does linear fitting for linear models and \
LevenbergMarquardt nonlinear fitting for nonlinear models"
