# Class "FLXcontrol"

### Description

Hyperparameters for the EM algorithm.

### Objects from the Class

Objects can be created by calls of the form ```
new("FLXcontrol",
...)
```

. In addition, named lists can be coerced to `FLXcontrol`

objects, names are completed if unique (see examples).

### Slots

`iter.max`

:Maximum number of iterations.

`minprior`

:Minimum prior probability of clusters, components falling below this threshold are removed during the iteration.

`tolerance`

:The EM algorithm is stopped when the (relative) change of log-likelihood is smaller than

`tolerance`

.`verbose`

:If a positive integer, then the log-likelihood is reported every

`verbose`

iterations. If 0, no output is generated during model fitting.`classify`

:Character string, one of

`"auto"`

,`"weighted"`

,`"hard"`

(or`"CEM"`

),`"random"`

or (`"SEM"`

).`nrep`

:Reports the number of random initializations used in

`stepFlexmix()`

to determine the mixture.

Run `new("FLXcontrol")`

to see the default settings of all slots.
