Data Fitting Problem

If I use starting values for a, b and c, how will I know that the solution is a global optimum?

You won't without doing a good investigation of the objective function. However, you should try several different starting points too see if you come up with different local minima.

For some of the model functions you will need to add constraints to make sure that the solutions stay feasible, e.g., $x - b \geq 0$ (or some small value such as $1^{-10}$).

How do we evaluate a function in AMPL, for the objective function?
