This document serves as a guide for users of the Multilinear Engine version 2 (ME-2) for source apportionment applications utilizing positive matrix factorization (PMF). It aims to educate experienced source apportionment analysts on available ME rotational tools and provides guidance sensitivity analyses. Prior to using ME-2 for PMF, users should be familiar with the PMF model and its applications. Users should also be familiar with the wide body of literature describing PMF and ME-2.
