Various algorithms for segmentation of 2D and 3D images, such as computed tomography and satellite remote sensing. This package implements Bayesian image analysis using the hidden Potts model with external field prior of Moores et al. (2015) <doi:10.1016/j.csda.2014.12.001>. Latent labels are sampled using chequerboard updating or Swendsen-Wang. Algorithms for the smoothing parameter include pseudolikelihood, path sampling, the exchange algorithm, approximate Bayesian computation (ABC-MCMC and ABC-SMC), and the parametric functional approximate Bayesian (PFAB) algorithm. Refer to <doi:10.1007/s11222-014-9525-6> and <doi:10.1214/18-BA1130> for further details.

Sequential Monte Carlo (SMC) algorithms for fitting a generalised additive mixed model (GAMM) to surface-enhanced resonance Raman spectroscopy (SERRS), using the method of Moores et al. (2016) <arXiv:1604.07299>. Multivariate observations of SERRS are highly collinear and lend themselves to a reduced-rank representation. The GAMM separates the SERRS signal into three components: a sequence of Lorentzian, Gaussian, or pseudo-Voigt peaks; a smoothly-varying baseline; and additive white noise. The parameters of each component of the model are estimated iteratively using SMC. The posterior distributions of the parameters given the observed spectra are represented as a population of weighted particles.
