Tools for the analysis of finite semiparametric mixtures. These are useful when data is heterogeneous, e.g. in pharmacokinetics or meta-analysis. The NPMLE and VEM algorithms (flexible support size) and EM algorithms (fixed support size) are provided for univariate and bivariate data.
Provides functions for diagnostic meta-analysis. Next to basic analysis and visualization the bivariate Model of Reitsma et al. (2005) that is equivalent to the HSROC of Rutter & Gatsonis (2001) can be fitted. A new approach based to diagnostic meta-analysis of Holling et al. (2012) is also available. Standard methods like summary, plot and so on are provided.
Extended techniques for generalized linear models (GLMs), especially for binary responses, including parametric links and heteroskedastic latent variables.
