Statistical Inference on Lineup Fairness

Since the early 1970s eyewitness testimony researchers have recognised the importance of estimating properties such as lineup bias (is the lineup biased against the suspect, leading to a rate of choosing higher than one would expect by chance?), and lineup size (how many reasonable choices are in fact available to the witness? A lineup is supposed to consist of a suspect and a number of additional members, or foils, whom a poor-quality witness might mistake for the perpetrator). Lineup measures are descriptive, in the first instance, but since the earliest articles in the literature researchers have recognised the importance of reasoning inferentially about them. This package contains functions to compute various properties of laboratory or police lineups, and is intended for use by researchers in forensic psychology and/or eyewitness testimony research. Among others, the r4lineups package includes functions for calculating lineup proportion, functional size, various estimates of effective size, diagnosticity ratio, homogeneity of the diagnosticity ratio, ROC curves for confidence x accuracy data and the degree of similarity of faces in a lineup.

'RStudio' Addins to Simplify 'Markdown' Writing

An 'RStudio' addin providing shortcuts for writing in 'Markdown'. This package provides a series of functions that allow the user to be more efficient when using 'Markdown'. For example, you can select a word, and put it in bold or in italics, or change the alignment of elements inside you Rmd. The idea is to map all the functionalities from 'remedy' on keyboard shortcuts, so that it provides an interface close to what you can find in any other text editor.

Simulation of Evolutionary and Epidemiological Dynamics

Suite of functions for the simulation, visualisation and analysis of bacterial evolution within- and between-host.

Spatial Analysis and Data Mining for Field Ecologists

Set of tools for reading, writing and transforming spatial and seasonal data in ecology, model selection and specific statistical tests. It includes functions to discretize polylines into regular point intervals, link observations to those points, compute geographical coordinates at regular intervals between waypoints, read subsets of big rasters, compute zonal statistics or table of categories within polygons or circular buffers from raster. The package also provides miscellaneous functions for model selection, spatial statistics, geometries, writing data.frame with Chinese characters, and some other functions for field ecologists.

Spatial Temporal Analysis of Moving Polygons

Perform spatial temporal analysis of moving polygons; a longstanding analysis problem in Geographic Information Systems. Facilitates directional analysis, shape analysis, and some other simple functionality for examining spatial-temporal patterns of moving polygons.

Gillespie's Stochastic Simulation Algorithm (SSA)

GillespieSSA provides a simple to use, intuitive, and extensible interface to several stochastic simulation algorithms for generating simulated trajectories of finite population continuous-time model. Currently it implements Gillespie's exact stochastic simulation algorithm (Direct method) and several approximate methods (Explicit tau-leap, Binomial tau-leap, and Optimized tau-leap). The package also contains a library of template models that can be run as demo models and can easily be customized and extended. Currently the following models are included, decaying-dimerization reaction set, linear chain system, logistic growth model, Lotka predator-prey model, Rosenzweig-MacArthur predator-prey model, Kermack-McKendrick SIR model, and a metapopulation SIRS model.

Functions to Support the ICES Transparent Assessment Framework

Functions to support the ICES Transparent Assessment Framework < http://taf.ices.dk> to organize data, methods, and results used in ICES assessments. ICES is an organization facilitating international collaboration in marine science.

Functions Related to ICES Advice

A collection of functions that facilitate computational steps related to advice for fisheries management, according to ICES guidelines. These include methods for calculating reference points and model diagnostics.

Find, Characterize, and Explore Extreme Events in Climate Projections

Inputs a directory of climate projection files and, for each, identifies and characterizes heat waves for specified study locations. The definition used to identify heat waves can be customized. Heat wave characterizations include several metrics of heat wave length, intensity, and timing in the year. The heat waves that are identified can be explored using a function to apply user-created functions across all generated heat wave files.This work was supported in part by grants from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (R00ES022631), the National Science Foundation (1331399), and the Colorado State University Vice President for Research.
