Multi-Set Split Feasibility (splitFeas)
An implementation of the majorization-minimization (MM) algorithm introduced by Xu, Chi, Yang, and Lange (2017) <arXiv:1612.05614> for solving multi-set split feasibility problems. In the multi-set split feasibility problem, we seek to find a point x in the intersection of multiple closed sets and whose image under a mapping also must fall in the intersection of several closed sets.

Prepare Figure Region for Base Graphics (prepplot)
A figure region is prepared, creating a plot region with suitable background color, grid lines or shadings, and providing axes and labeling if not suppressed. Subsequently, information carrying graphics elements can be added (points, lines, barplot with add=TRUE and so forth).

Compute Expected Shortfall and Value at Risk for Continuous Distributions (cvar)
Compute expected shortfall (ES) and Value at Risk (VaR) from a quantile function, distribution function, random number generator or probability density function. ES is also known as Conditional Value at Risk (CVaR). Virtually any continuous distribution can be specified. The functions are vectorized over the arguments. The computations are done directly from the definitions, see e.g. Acerbi and Tasche (2002) <doi:10.1111/1468-0300.00091>.

Indices for Single-Case Research (effectsizescr)
Parametric and nonparametric statistics for single-case design. Regarding nonparametric statistics, the index suggested by Parker, Vannest, Davis and Sauber (2011) <doi:10.1016/j.beth.2010.08.006> was included. It combines both nonoverlap and trend to estimate the effect size of a treatment in a single case design.

Non-Life Insurance Rate-Making System (nlirms)
Design of non-life insurance rate-making system with a frequency and a severity component based on the a posteriori criteria. The rate-making system is a general form of bonus-malus system introduced by Lemaire (1995), <doi:10.1007/978-94-011-0631-3> and Frangos and Vrontos (2001), <doi:10.2143/AST.31.1.991>.
