Spatio-Temporal Under-Five Mortality Methods for Estimation (SUMMER)
Provides methods for estimating, projecting, and plotting spatio-temporal under-five mortality rates, described in Mercer et al. (2015) <doi:10.1214/15-AOAS872>.

MCMC Procedures for Estimating Enzyme Kinetics Constants (EKMCMC)
Functions for estimating catalytic constant and Michaelis-Menten constant for enzyme kinetics model using Metropolis-Hasting algorithm within Gibbs sampler based on the Bayesian framework. Additionally, a function to create plot to identify the goodness-of-fit is included.

32-Bit Floats (float)
R comes with a suite of utilities for linear algebra with ‘numeric’ (double precision) vectors/matrices. However, sometimes single precision (or less!) is more than enough for a particular task. This package extends R’s linear algebra facilities to include 32-bit float (single precision) data. Float vectors/matrices have half the precision of their ‘numeric’-type but are generally faster to numerically operate on, for a performance vs accuracy trade-off. The internal representation is an S4 class, which allows us to keep the syntax identical to that of base R’s. Interaction between floats and base types for binary operators is generally possible; in these cases, type promotion always defaults to the higher precision. The package ships with copies of the single precision ‘BLAS’ and ‘LAPACK’, which are automatically built in the event they are not available on the system.

Spatial Influence of Landscape (siland)
Method to estimate the spatial influence scales of landscape variables on a response variable. The method is based on Chandler and Hepinstall-Cymerman (2016) Estimating the spatial scales of landscape effects on abundance, Landscape ecology, 31: 1383-1394, <doi:10.1007/s10980-016-0380-z>.

NMF-EM Algorithm (nmfem)
Provides a version of the Expectation-Maximization algorithm for mix-models, reducing the numbers of parameters to estimate using Non-negative Matrix Factorization methods. For more explanations, see pre-print of Carel and Alquier (2017) <arXiv:1709.03346>.
