Dear OpenSEES Community members

Can anyone tell me the meaning of the following parameters, which are defined in "ndMaterial" source code,

the prupose of 1 analysis step is to find the next converged stp, given the current converged step. In the nonlinear analysis the model usually will go through a number of trial steps. these are not on the solution path, but trial solution points. If the convergence test is satisfied at a given trial step, the analysis step stops. before it returns, it tells the model that this is a converged step and hence the need for the 2 methods. if no converged step is found and the analysis fails, the revertTo LastCommit methods are invoked.
