A set of R functions for calculating sample size requirements using three different Bayesian criteria in the context of designing an experiment to estimate normal means or the difference between two normal means. Criteria include the Average Length Criterion, the Average Coverage Criterion and the Modified Worst Outcome Criterion. Functions for both the fully Bayesian and the mixed Bayesian/likelihood approaches are provided.

See the related package SampleSizeProportions for Bayesian sample size determination for the difference between two binomial proportions
