Routines and documentation for solving regression problems while imposing an L1 constraint on the estimates, based on the algorithm of Osborne et al. (1998).

Functions for fitting monotone polynomials to data. Detailed discussion of the methodologies used can be found in Murray, Mueller and Turlach (2013) <doi:10.1007/s00180-012-0390-5> and Murray, Mueller and Turlach (2016) <doi:10.1080/00949655.2016.1139582>.

This package contains routines and documentation for solving quadratic programming problems.

Provides a framework to generating random variates from arbitrary multivariate copulae, while concentrating on (bivariate) extreme value copulae. Particularly useful if the multivariate copulae are not available in closed form.
