The 0 and 1 areas are more or less contiguous, though the boundary between them can be somewhat fuzzy. The boundary is expected to be described by the equation y=a x^b. How can I adapt NonlinearModelFit or any other standard function to find the best fit values for a and b? Thanks!

y = a x^b is linear in log-log coordinates, so use LogitModelFit
with Log@x and Log@y as the predictors; i.e., the probability of
observing z == 1 is 1/(1 + Exp[-(b0 + b1*Log@x + b2*Log@y)]).
