astarts 
Explicit starts for a, if applicable. 
maxit 
The maximum number of iterations with respect to G. 
n 
The number of respondents. 
m 
The number of items. 
q 
The maximum rating category such that the rating scale is 
Fr.cent 
The centred Fr matrix. 
maxit.ALS 
The maximum number of ALS iterations. 
Mmat 
The basis matrix for the quadratic monotone splines. 
eps.G 
The absolute error tolerance for the G updates. 
info.level 
Integer controlling the amount of information printed. 
times.a.multistart
