    Does "fit" here mean "properly treat"?

    ***************

    The results of the reactor experiments were mixed. The two longest running experiments showed restrictive limits on the allowed parameter space but also displayed tantalizing wiggles at the limits of their sensitivity. One went as far as to fit these wiggles as an oscillation, finding a suggestive hint for this interpretation. The newer experiments don’t yet match the leading sensitivity, but they did show that they will be complementary, with their sensitivities optimized for the regions preferred by the funny wiggles.
