Errors

This section documents warnings and errors generated by this task (if any). Note that warnings and errors can also be generated in the SAS infrastructure libraries, in which case they would not be documented here. Refer to the index of all errors and warnings available in the HTML version of the SAS documentation.

noComponentserror 
 The list fitsets is empty.
 
inconsistentComponentserror 
 A pair of fitsets component images was found with differing dimensions.
 
badComponentDimensionserror 
 The dimensions of the components fitsets are not the same as those of poissonset.
 
badMaskDimensionserror 
 The dimensions of maskset are not the same as those of poissonset.
 
negativePoissonValueserror 
 Some of the pixels of poissonset have negative values.
 
negativeValuesModelImageerror 
 One of the model components has some negative-valued pixels.
 
modelImageAllZeroerror 
 One of the model components has been found with all zero pixel values.
 
maskImageAllFalseerror 
 No true-valued mask pixels were found.
 
imagesTooSimilarerror 
 Two of the model components have been found to be too similar (ie, $Q$ for this pair exceeds the maximum permitted value). See section 3.2.1.
 
badFitStyleerror 
 The value of fitstyle was not recognized.
 
wrongNumCoeffserror 
 The number of elements in the list initcoeffs was not the same as the number in the list fitsets.
 
badLuSolveExitStatuserror 
 The ssclib routine solveLinearEquations exited with a non-zero status, which indicates an error.
 
fitIsDivergingwarning 
 The fitting routine is no longer converging.
corrective action: The fitting routine terminates.
 
maxIterationsExceededwarning 
 The fitting routine has exceeded a set maximum number of iterations without achieving the convergence criterion.
corrective action: The fitting routine terminates.
 
zeroChiSquaredwarning 
 
corrective action: The best-fitting chi-square value is zero, which in practice should never happen for the real data.
