# How the weight $ω_{i,t}$ is initialized in Background subtraction GMM (Gaussian Mixture Model)?

I read Chris Stauffer paper "Adaptive background mixture models for real-time tracking" about Gaussian Mixture Model for background subtraction, but they're not explained very detail about $ω_{i,t}$ value, what I want to ask is how the value initialized and what the range of it?
