Regression for data too large to fit in memory. This package functions exactly like the 'biglm' package, but works with later versions of R.

Contains functions that lets you fit dynamic hazard models using state space models. The first implemented model is described in Fahrmeir (1992) <doi:10.1080/01621459.1992.10475232> and Fahrmeir (1994) <doi:10.1093/biomet/81.2.317>. Extensions hereof are available where the Extended Kalman filter is replaced by an unscented Kalman filter and other options including particle filters. The implemented particle filters support more general state space models.

A collection of statistical tools for objective (non-supervised) applications of the Regional Frequency Analysis methods in hydrology. The package refers to the index-value method and, more precisely, helps the hydrologist to: (1) regionalize the index-value; (2) form homogeneous regions with similar growth curves; (3) fit distribution functions to the empirical regional growth curves. Most of the methods are those described in the Flood Estimation Handbook (Centre for Ecology & Hydrology, 1999, ISBN:9781906698003). Homogeneity tests from Hosking and Wallis (1993) <doi:10.1029/92WR01980> and Viglione et al. (2007) <doi:10.1029/2006WR005095> are available.
