Description
This command defines one of the criteria used for automatic selection of parameters or superparameters (see Tonkin and Doherty [2005]). The parameter space can be truncated based on the eigenvalues of the Fisher Information matrix. Parameter trunc defines the cut-off value as the ratio of the eigenvalue to the maximum eigenvalue (default: 10-6). If given as an integer, the top INT(trunc) parameters will be selected. If trunc is a negative integer, more parameters are added as iterations proceed, with all parameters included for the final iteration.
