Dear group:

I wrote a code to iterate a non-linear fit with a set of data. The entire process didn't implemented to the end because an error message, "singular gradient". I knew that some sub-sets (columns) do not fit my formula well and may result in parameters going to infinity. It is pretty hard to remove those sub sets before running the code since that will take a lot of time.

I added some logic assessments prior to running nonlinear fit. It helped but some exceptions still existed. I am wondering if there is any way in R by which I can continue to run the entire code to the end by ignoring the error message?

Greatly appreciate your help,

Jianping
