fmcmc: A friendly MCMC framework

Provides a friendly (flexible) Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) framework for implementing Metropolis-Hastings algorithm in a modular way allowing users to specify automatic convergence checker, personalized transition kernels, and out-of-the-box multiple MCMC chains using parallel computing. Most of the methods implemented in this package can be found in Brooks et al. (2011, ISBN 9781420079425). Among the methods included, we have: Haario (2001) <doi:10.1007/s11222-011-9269-5> Adaptive Metropolis, Vihola (2012) <doi:10.1007/s11222-011-9269-5> Robust Adaptive Metropolis, and Thawornwattana et al. (2018) <doi:10.1214/17-BA1084> Mirror transition kernels.
