Dear Jean-Marc, Dear All,
You are right that parameter A, B, C, D, E should be lowercase or longer name. In order to shorten long parameters for the discussion, I write 5 parameters in single capital letter, A, B, C, D, E. In practice the parameters is longer and module psT[Texp,pA, pB, pC, pD, pE]  and rhocal = rhoT[Texp, pA, pB, pC, pD, pE] run perfectly.
The problem for me is that I can not find out correct 5 parameters by using NonlinearRegress or NMinimize to fit the experimental data. May be I need to use other commands or modify my syntax or procedure or manipulation... to solve the problem.
I would appreciate if you or anyone can help me to solve the problem.
Thanks and regards,

Lai Ngoc Anh

FWIW, though I cannot tell for sure whether this is the source of your
problems, note that, in general, it is a very bad idea to use single
capital letters as names of variables because many of them have already
been attributed some predefined meanings (every Mathematica built-in
command begins with a capital letter). For instance, D is the
differential operator, E is the base for natural logarithms. You should
use longer names and/or start them with lowercase letters.
