Hi,

ak^2 is interpreted as the square of ak, hardly what you want.

Here is an example:

=============================

a =.; b =.; c =.;

data = Table[{k, Log[a k^2 + b k + c]}, {k, 1, 50}] /. {a -> 1,

b -> 2, c -> 3};

nlm = NonlinearModelFit[data, Log[a k^2 + b k + c], {a, b, c}, k]

=============================
