Provides functions that (1) fit multivariate discrete distributions, (2) generate random numbers from multivariate discrete distributions, and (3) run regression and penalized regression on the multivariate categorical response data. Implemented models include: multinomial logit model, Dirichlet multinomial model, generalized Dirichlet multinomial model, and negative multinomial model. Making the best of the minorizationmaximization (MM) algorithm and NewtonRaphson method, we derive and implement stable and efficient algorithms to find the maximum likelihood estimates. On a multicore machine, multithreading is supported.
