```Mike & list,

Where can I find a reasonable model for my delr terms, if I do assume
that the bond angles are changing/there is no isotropic expansion?  Is there a
description somewhere in the archives that I could look at?

Creating different sigma squared parameters for each path did help the R-
Factor somewhat, but not the reduced chi.  Here's some data:

Fit with seperate sigma's:

Independent points          =      14.312500000
Number of variables         =       6.000000000
Chi-square                  =    5778.957783654
Reduced Chi-square          =     695.212966455
R-factor                    =       0.029041008
Measurement uncertainty (k) =       0.000181935
Measurement uncertainty (R) =       0.004860095
Number of data sets         =       1.000000000

Guess parameters +/- uncertainties  (initial guess):
e0_1            =    -4.0347670   +/-      2.9998980    (guessed as -4.072009
(1.919404))
