The main function of penalized Gaussian graphical model-based clustering with unconstrained covariance matrices.

1 2 3 |

`lambda` |
A list, the sequences of the tuning parameters (lambda1 and lambda2). |

`data` |
n * p matrix, the design matrix. |

`K` |
Int, a given number of subgroups. |

`initial.selection` |
The different initial values from two clustering methods, which can be selected from c("K-means","dbscan"). |

`initialize` |
A given initial values, which should be given when initial.selection is not in c("K-means","dbscan"). |

`average` |
The logical variable, whether to use averaging when integrating parameters that are identified as identical subgroups, the default setting is F, which means the estimated parameters for the subgroup with the largest sample size among the subgroups identified as identical subgroups is used as the final parameter for this subgroup. |

`asymmetric` |
The logical variable, symmetry of the precision matrices or not, the default setting is T. |

`eps` |
A float value, algorithm termination threshold. |

`maxiter` |
Int, maximum number of cycles of the ADMM algorithm. |

`maxiter.AMA` |
Int, maximum number of cycles of the AMA algorithm. |

`local_appro` |
The logical variable, whether to use local approximations when updating mean parameters, the default setting is T. |

`trace` |
The logical variable, whether or not to output the number of identified subgroups during the search for parameters. |

`penalty` |
The type of the penalty, which can be selected from c("MCP", "SCAD", "lasso"). |

A list including all estimated parameters and the BIC values with all choices of given tuning parameters, and the selected optional parameters.
