common lead correction:

show.p 
Show the pvalue for concordance for each aliquot to the output table. Note: it would be unwise to use the pvalue value as a concordance filter. Doing so would ‘punish’ high precision measurements, which are more likely to fail the Chisquare test than low precision measurements. The latter would therefore be ‘rewarded’ by such a criterion. 
isochron 
logical flag indicating whether each analysis
should be considered separately ( 
i2i 
‘isochron to intercept’: calculates the initial (aka
‘inherited’, ‘excess’, or ‘common’)
