Syntax: MAXIMUM number
where number is a positive integer which is greater than or equal to APPROXIMATE.

The MAXIMUM command sets to number the maximum number of iterations which are to be performed by the model fitting algorithm.

For mixture models, the first APPROXIMATE iterations use the Meilijson approximation to the Hessian, while the remaining (number-APPROXIMATE) iterations use the matrix of true second derivatives.

The default total number of iterations is 100. The current setting of the MAXIMUM parameter may be obtained by issuing the DISPLAY SETTINGS command.
