The problem is that some of your parameters are redundant. As for your
question, the returned values should be those of the best fit achieved
so far by the algorithm. They might be almost equivalent to the
parameters, after convergence, of an equivalent problem formulated
without redundant parameters.
For the record, I recommend using nonlin_curvefit (or nonlin_residmin)
instead of leasqr.
