Percentile

This package fits Bayesian conditional autoregressive models for spatial and spatiotemporal data on a lattice. It uses OpenCL kernels running on GPUs to perform rejection sampling to obtain independent samples from the joint posterior distribution of model parameters.

Percentile

Bayesian Additive Regression Trees (BART) provide flexible nonparametric modeling of covariates for continuous, binary, categorical and time-to-event outcomes. For more information on BART, see Chipman, George and McCulloch (2010) <doi:10.1214/09-AOAS285> and Sparapani, Logan, McCulloch and Laud (2016) <doi:10.1002/sim.6893>.

Percentile

Provides functions for summarizing and plotting the output from Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) simulations, as well as diagnostic tests of convergence to the equilibrium distribution of the Markov chain.

Percentile

Bayesian geostatistical modeling of Gaussian processes using a reparameterized and marginalized posterior sampling (RAMPS) algorithm designed to lower autocorrelation in MCMC samples. Package performance is tuned for large spatial datasets.
