Fast Calculation of the Likelihood of a Stochastic Survival Model


GUTS (General Unified Threshold model of Survival) is a stochastic survival model for ecotoxicology. The package allows for the definition of exposure and survival time series as well as parameter values, and the fast calculation of the survival probabilities as well as the logarithm of the corresponding likelihood.

A GUTS object is a special list of class “GUTS”. Functions guts_setup, guts_calc_loglikelihood and guts_calc_survivalprobs are available to create and work with GUTS objects. A data set diazinon is also included. See links for more details.
