Coffee Break Descriptive Analysis (cbanalysis)
Contains function which subsets the input data frame based on the variable types and returns list of data frames.

R to Solr Interface (rsolr)
A comprehensive R API for querying Apache Solr databases. A Solr core is represented as a data frame or list that supports Solr-side filtering, sorting, transformation and aggregation, all through the familiar base R API. Queries are processed lazily, i.e., a query is only sent to the database when the data are required.

Bayesian Additive Regression Trees (BART)
Bayesian Additive Regression Trees (BART) provide flexible nonparametric modeling of covariates for continuous, binary and time-to-event outcomes. For more information on BART, see Chipman, George and McCulloch (2010) <doi:10.1214/09-AOAS285> and Sparapani, Logan, McCulloch and Laud (2016) <doi:10.1002/sim.6893>.

Black-Litterman Posterior Distribution (BLModel)
Posterior distribution in the Black-Litterman model is computed from a prior distribution given in the form of a time series of asset returns and a continuous distribution of views provided by the user as an external function.

Syllable Counting and Readability Measurements (sylcount)
An English language syllable counter, plus readability score measure-er. The package has been carefully optimized and should be very efficient, both in terms of run time performance and memory consumption. The main methods are ‘vectorized’ by document, and scores for multiple documents are computed in parallel via ‘OpenMP’.
