What is a good strategy for selecting starting points when setting up a nonlinear regression problem?
This depends on what sort of model you are fitting but if you really can't establish this from knowledge of the data + model you are fitting some self starting techniques include a grid search, quadratic regression or even using linear least squares to get some initial coefficients.
