Provides functions to compute and plot Krippendorff's inter-coder reliability coefficient alpha and bootstrapped uncertainty estimates (Krippendorff 2004, ISBN:0761915443). The bootstrap routines are set up to make use of parallel threads where supported.

Contains functions to perform Bayesian inference using posterior simulation for a number of statistical models. Most simulation is done in compiled C++ written in the Scythe Statistical Library Version 1.0.3. All models return 'coda' mcmc objects that can then be summarized using the 'coda' package. Some useful utility functions such as density functions, pseudo-random number generators for statistical distributions, a general purpose Metropolis sampling algorithm, and tools for visualization are provided.

Implementation of Jones (2007) <doi:10.1016/j.cct.2007.02.008> , Tournoux-Facon (2011) <doi:10.1002/sim.4148> and Parashar (2016) <doi:10.1002/pst.1742> designs.

Provides an interface to the C implementation of the random number generator with multiple independent streams developed by L'Ecuyer et al (2002). The main purpose of this package is to enable the use of this random number generator in parallel R applications.
