Allows to set the control parameters for the more technical aspects of the function logcon
and provides default values for any parameters that are not set.

maxiter 
the maximal number of iterations in the main EM algorithm. Default is 
move.prec 
a real number giving the threshold for the L1distance between densities in subsequent steps below which the algorithm is stopped. 
domind1l, domind2r 
index numbers in the vector of sorted interval endpoints that specify the left and right boundary of the maximal domain to be considered by the algorithm; see the details section of the help for 
force.inf 

red.thresh 
a real number indicating the threshold below which the boundary integrals are considered too small; see the details section of the help for 
check.red 

addpoints 

addeps 
a positive real number. If 
preweights 
a vector of weights for the observation intervals. Defaults to 
minw 
a positive real number. This gives another way for preventing domain reduction. Instead of adding observations the weights for the internal active set algorithm are kept at or above minw at the boundary of the domain.

. In summary:
maxiter
and move.prec
provide stopping criteria for the EM algorithm.
domind1l
, domind2r
, force.inf
, red.thresh
, and check.red
control aspects related to domain reduction.
addpoints
, addeps
, preweights
, winw
allow for reweighing of data interval, mainly for increasing numerical stability by preventing domain reduction.
show
and verbose
give illustrations and background information of the run of the algorithm.
