At the end of the iterative process, we will have
produced an ephemeris that best fits the observations,
given the model used, as well as the best-fit model
parameters, formal error estimates of those parame-
ters, and the parameter cross-correlations. The
parameter error estimates and parameter correlations
are derived from the partial derivatives and the corre-
lation matrix from the least squares analysis. Experi-
ence with PEP has shown that, normally, at most
only a few iterations are needed.
