1) My guess is that the Curve Fitting window told you that there was some
difficulty with the fit. If so, what did it say?

2) How certain are you of your function? From the image of your data it
looks more like a sinusoidal times a quadratic or something similar. Taking
sine of sine of arctangent seems odd to me.
