What is the role of F in dict(E, **F)

P: n/a
Entering
help(dict.update) Help on method_descriptor:

update(...)
D.update(E, **F) -> None. Update D from E and F: for k in E: D[k]
= E[k]
(if E has keys else: for (k, v) in E: D[k] = v) then: for k in F:
D[k] = F[k]

As I understand update() is used to merge two dictionaries, for example
D={'a':1, 'b':2}
E={'b':4,'c':6}
D.update(E)
D {'a': 1, 'c': 6, 'b': 4}


But what is the role of **F?
