This model fitting tool incorporates cyclic coordinate descent and majorization-minimization approaches to fit a variety of regression models found in large-scale observational healthcare data. Implementations focus on computational optimization and fine-scale parallelization to yield efficient inference in massive datasets. Please see: Suchard, Simpson, Zorych, Ryan and Madigan (2013) <doi:10.1145/2414416.2414791>.
Executes arbitrary R or C functions some time after the current time, after the R execution stack has emptied. The functions are scheduled in an event loop.
High level functions for parallel programming with 'Rcpp'. For example, the 'parallelFor()' function can be used to convert the work of a standard serial "for" loop into a parallel one and the 'parallelReduce()' function can be used for accumulating aggregate or other values.
Interface to 'Python' modules, classes, and functions. When calling into 'Python', R data types are automatically converted to their equivalent 'Python' types. When values are returned from 'Python' to R they are converted back to R types. Compatible with all versions of 'Python' >= 2.7.
