Thanks for answering.

> your AIC is monotonic increasing

That was the reason I suspected something is wrong, but what?

Either the way I calculate the number of estimiated parameters? Or the (scale of the) Likelihood itself?

components analysis). Maybe some of those factors are not contributing?

The data was simulated, so we know what it is.
