bang: Bayesian Analysis, No Gibbs

Provides functions for the Bayesian analysis of some simple commonly-used models, without using Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) methods such as Gibbs sampling. The 'rust' package <> is used to simulate a random sample from the required posterior distribution, using the generalized ratio-of-uniforms method. See Wakefield, Gelfand and Smith (1991) <DOI:10.1007/BF01889987> for details. At the moment three conjugate hierarchical models are available: beta-binomial, gamma-Poisson and a 1-way analysis of variance (ANOVA).
