Initialization and log probability problem

I have following code which give me error message:

Chain 1: Log probability evaluates to log(0), i.e. negative infinity.
Chain 1: Stan can’t start sampling from this initial value.
Chain 1:
Chain 1: Initialization between (-2, 2) failed after 100 attempts.
Chain 1: Try specifying initial values, reducing ranges of constrained values, or reparameterizing the model.
[1] “Error in sampler$call_sampler(args_list[[i]]) : Initialization failed.”
[1] “error occurred during calling the sampler; sampling not done”

The R-code is:

dat=read.table(“Loss Reserve Data.txt”); st=1;
N=dim(dat)[1] #number of rows



poli=as.integer(dat$poli) # rows i effect (policy year)
develop=as.integer(dat$develop) # columns j effect (development year)

I=nlevels(dat$poli);I1=I-1; #number of levels of policy (i)
J=nlevels(dat$develop);J1=J-1 #number of levels of development (j)

P=I1+6 #no of par in the model

#begin Rstan program

show all the constrainted by lower=0. Are you sure non in of the mu[i] cases in for(i in 1:N) ... loop is not assigned?

Besides that, please reformat your posting. It is really hard to follow.
