Model Based Diagnostics for Multivariate Cluster Analysis (optimus)
Assessment and diagnostics for comparing competing clustering solutions, using predictive models. The main intended use is for comparing clustering/classification solutions of ecological data (e.g. presence/absence, counts, ordinal scores) to 1) find an optimal partitioning solution, 2) identify characteristic species and 3) refine a classification by merging clusters that increase predictive performance. However, in a more general sense, this package can do the above for any set of clustering solutions for i observations of j variables.

Artificial Counterfactual Package (ArCo)
Set of functions to analyse and estimate Artificial Counterfactual models from Carvalho, Masini and Medeiros (2016) <DOI:10.2139/ssrn.2823687>.

Test and Optimise Sampling Designs Based on Plume Simulations (sensors4plumes)
Test sampling designs by several flexible cost functions, usually based on the simulations, and optimise sampling designs using different optimisation algorithms; load plume simulations (on lattice or points) even if they do not fit into memory.

Utility Functions for Survival Analysis (survutils)
Functional programming principles to iteratively run Cox regression and plot its results. The results are reported in tidy data frames. Additional utility functions are available for working with other aspects of survival analysis such as survival curves, C-statistics, etc.
