Re: How to set AccuracyGoal and PrecisionGoal?
This is an example of why we need a control structure that allows one to add or modify the DownValues of a function without Blocking its original DownValues. The reason is that the desired option is difficult to change without actually changing the default options of FindMinimum. If the user's routine Aborts in the middle of a computation for which FindMinimum's default options have been changed, they will remain changed until the user manually sets them back -- and now, a response -- Did you give NonlinearRegress a poorly conditioned fitting problem? One easy way to set the WorkingPrecision option would be to use SetOptions on FindMinimum before your NonlinearRegress call.
