Root Mean Square Curvature Calculation (IPEC)
Calculates the RMS intrinsic and parameter-effects curvatures of a nonlinear regression model.

Movement to Behaviour Inference using Random Forest (m2b)
Prediction of behaviour from movement characteristics using observation and random forest for the analyses of movement data in ecology. From movement information (speed, bearing…) the model predicts the observed behaviour (movement, foraging…) using random forest. The model can then extrapolate behavioural information to movement data without direct observation of behaviours. The specificity of this method relies on the derivation of multiple predictor variables from the movement data over a range of temporal windows. This procedure allows to capture as much information as possible on the changes and variations of movement and ensures the use of the random forest algorithm to its best capacity. The method is very generic, applicable to any set of data providing movement data together with observation of behaviour.

Performs Segmented Linear Regression on Two Independent Variables (cowbell)
Implements a specific form of segmented linear regression with two independent variables. The visualization of that function looks like a quarter segment of a cowbell giving the package its name. The package has been specifically constructed for the case where minimum and maximum value of the dependent and two independent variables are known a prior, which is usually the case when those values are derived from Likert scales.

Functions for the STARTS Model (STARTS)
Contains functions for estimating the STARTS model of Kenny and Zautra (1995, 2001) <DOI:10.1037/0022-006X.63.1.52>, <DOI:10.1037/10409-008>.

Transmissions and Receptions in an End to End Network (Opportunistic)
Computes the expectation of the number of broadcasts, transmissions and receptions considering an Opportunistic transport model. It provides theoretical results and also estimated values based on Monte Carlo simulations.
