Multivariate Symmetric Uncertainty and Other Measurements (msu)
Estimators for multivariate symmetrical uncertainty based on the work of Gustavo Sosa et al. (2016) <arXiv:1709.08730>, total correlation, information gain and symmetrical uncertainty of categorical variables.

Higher-Order Generalized Singular Value Decomposition (hogsvdR)
Implementation of higher order generalized singular value decomposition (HO GSVD). Based on Ponnapalli, Saunders, etal (2011) <doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0028072>.

Modified Mann Kendall Trend Tests with Variance Correction Approach (modifiedmk)
Power of non-parametric Mann-Kendall test is highly influenced by serially correlated data. To address this issue, original time-series is modified by removing any trend component existing in the data and calculating effective sample size. Hamed, K. H., & Ramachandra Rao, A. (1998). A modified Mann-Kendall trend test for auto correlated data. Journal of Hydrology, 204(1-4), 182-196. <doi:10.1016/S0022-1694(97)00125-X>. Yue, S., & Wang, C. Y. (2004). The Mann-Kendall test modified by effective sample size to detect trend in serially correlated hydrological series. Water Resources Management, 18(3), 201-218. <doi:10.1023/B:WARM.0000043140.61082.60>.

Mark-Recapture Analysis (mra)
Accomplishes mark-recapture analysis with covariates. Models available include the Cormack-Jolly-Seber open population (Cormack (1972) <doi:10.2307/2556151>; Jolly (1965) <doi:10.2307/2333826>; Seber (1965) <doi:10.2307/2333827>) and Huggin’s (1989) <doi:10.2307/2336377> closed population. Link functions include logit, sine, and hazard. Model selection, model averaging, plot, and simulation routines included. Open population size by the Horvitz-Thompson (1959) <doi:10.2307/2280784> estimator.

Mode Testing and Exploring (multimode)
Different examples and methods for testing (including different proposals described in Ameijeiras-Alonso et al., 2016 <arXiv:1609.05188>) and exploring (including the mode tree, mode forest and SiZer) the number of modes using nonparametric techniques.

Identify and Parse Web Security Policies Files (securitytxt)
When security risks in web services are discovered by independent security researchers who understand the severity of the risk, they often lack the channels to properly disclose them. As a result, security issues may be left unreported. The ‘security.txt’ ‘Web Security Policies’ specification defines an ‘IETF’ draft standard <https://…/draft-foudil-securitytxt-00> to help organizations define the process for security researchers to securely disclose security vulnerabilities. Tools are provided to help identify and parse ‘security.txt’ files to enable analysis of the usage and adoption of these policies.
