fitting a curve

My only research contribution today was a short discussion with Jagannath and Price-Whelan about how to control or adjust adaptively the sampling of a numerically computed curve in non-linear curve fitting to data. The curve is not an analytic function, in general, so we have to choose a sampling. This sampling will matter if we aren't careful, but it is equally easy to over-compute and slow things down incredibly.
