When choosing between single, double, and triple exponential models the Akaike index is a better criteria to determine which model fits best than just the chi square.

Calculate & show the AIC as well as the current chi square in the fit results.

Fixed, may need tweaking.

I am using the formula:

AIC = chi-square + 2k


here k is the number of free parameters.

Usually the reduced chi-square gets reported, this is:

chi-square / n - k

here n is the number of data points and k the number of free parameters.
