```Merci Jean-Marc,
unfortunately the exponential (Z0 in the following) is 3/2, not 2/3.
When one is lucky ... because in the most general case the exponential
is a real number (between 1 and 1.5).
The function I'm trying to fit with the experimental data (that are
supplied in Vgk[[i]] and Vak[[i]])
is

is[Vgk_,Vak_,Z0_,G0_,G1_,G2_,
G3_,mu0_,mu1_,mu2_,mu3_,H0_,H1_,H2_,H3_]:=(G0+G1 Vgk+G2 Vgk^2+G3 Vgk^3
) (Vgk+Vak/(mu0+mu1 Vgk+mu2 Vgk^2+mu3 Vgk^3)+H0+H1 Vgk+H2 Vgk^2+H3
Vgk^3)^Z0

It has a lot of parameters, I know, but usually

G0>>G1>>G2>>G3

and so on, so I could, in principle, attempt a perturbative approach.
Unfortunately I get the same error even if I start from a enough good
solution (enough near fit).
Thanks again
Teodoro Marinucci
