Can someone explain the difference in the above terms to me please for mixture modelling as found in Mplus output? I'm not clear where they fit into the parts of the analysis command eg analysis 500 50.

I think you mean STARTS 500 50. A random seed is drawn. It is used to general a set of starting values. This seed is perturbed to generate the other 499 sets starting values. Then 50 sets of starting values are used for a complete analysis.
