A Sample Size Calculator for Micro-Randomized Trials (MRTSampleSize)
Provide a sample size calculator for micro-randomized trials (MRTs) based on methodology developed in Sample Size Calculations for Micro-randomized Trials in mHealth by Liao et al. (2016) <DOI:10.1002/sim.6847>.

iterative Random Forests (iRF)
Iteratively grows feature weighted random forests and finds high-order feature interactions in a stable fashion.

Model Fitting to Progressively Censored Mixture Data (pcensmix)
Functions for generating progressively Type-II censored data in a mixture structure and fitting models using a constrained EM algorithm. It can also create a progressive Type-II censored version of a given real dataset to be considered for model fitting.

Bayesian Model Averaging for Random and Fixed Effects Meta-Analysis (metaBMA)
Computes the posterior model probabilities for four meta-analysis models (null model vs. alternative model assuming either fixed- or random-effects, respectively). These posterior probabilities are used to estimate the overall mean effect size as the weighted average of the mean effect size estimates of the random- and fixed-effect model as proposed by Gronau, Van Erp, Heck, Cesario, Jonas, & Wagenmakers (2017, <doi:10.1080/23743603.2017.1326760>). The user can define a wide range of noninformative or informative priors for the mean effect size and the heterogeneity coefficient. Funding for this research was provided by the Berkeley Initiative for Transparency in the Social Sciences, a program of the Center for Effective Global Action (CEGA), with support from the Laura and John Arnold Foundation.

SIMEX Algorithm on Pedigree Structures (PSIMEX)
Generalization of the SIMEX algorithm from Cook & Stefanski (1994) <doi:10.2307/2290994> for the calculation of inbreeding depression or heritability on pedigree structures affected by missing or misassigned paternities. It simulates errors and tracks the behavior of the estimate as a function of the error proportion. It extrapolates back a true value corresponding to the null error rate.
