#' Parametric bootstrap for rescaling a la the vander zanden appendix
#' This is a vectorized and \strong{much} more efficient implementation
#' of the original \code{rescale} function from the Vander Zanden appendix.
#' It takes the output of \code{\link{group_birds_by_location}} directly
#' and does the parametric bootstrapping for vza_rescale_reps samples.
#' @param SBL the data frame that summarizes the isotope feather data and
#' isoscape predictions at each location. This must have columns of \code{cnt},
#' \code{meanH}, \code{sdH}, \code{meaniso}, \code{sdiso}
#' @param vza_rescale_reps Number of simulated regressions to do.  Default is 1000.
#' @return Returns a matrix with vza_rescale_reps rows.  Column 1 is "intercepts" and column
#' two is "slopes"
#' @keywords internal

  # make a list of matrices that hold simulated values for tissue  that
  # we will bind together into one big matrix.  The rows are the simulated
  # isotope values from the birds and the columns are the vza_rescale_reps

#' calculate a raster of mean and variance of expected tissue isotopes from precip data and resampled regressions
#' This is a rewrite of the function \code{raster.conversion} from the Vander Zanden
#' appendix.  They expressed things in terms of the standard deviations, but they need to
#' be turned into variances, anyway, so that is what we've done here.  Following the notation
#' of the paper on Wilson's warbler, this function computes $tilde{T}^{(mu)}$ (returned as
#' list component \code{mean.raster}) and $R^{(sigma^2)}$ (returned as list component
#' \code{var.raster})
#' @param iso_raster the raster of isotope precipitation values, for example, like that
#' produced by \code{\link{isomap2raster}}.
#' @param si  slopes and intercepts from the resampled regressions.  This is a data frame
#' with columns named "slopes" and "intercepts" like that returned by \code{\link{vza_rescale}}

  # make a list of rasters of tissue isotopes predicted by the resampled regressions:
  rlist <- lapply(seq_along(slopes), function(i) {
    iso_raster * slopes[i] + intercepts[i]

  # make a RasterStack
  rstack <- raster::stack(rlist)

  # return the mean and var of those:
    mean.raster = iso_raster * mean(slopes) + mean(intercepts),
    var.raster = raster::stackApply(rstack, fun = stats::var, indices = 1)

#' assign posterior probability of origin for a bird in each cell in the raster
#' This is a rewrite of the function \code{assignment} from the Vander
#' Zanden appendix code.
#' @param rescale_mean the tissue specific mean raster, such as the mean.raster
#' component of the output of \code{vza_mean_and_var_rasters}.
#' @param rescale_var tissue specific raster of standard deviations, such as the var.raster
#' component of the output of \code{vza_mean_and_var_rasters}.
#' @param precip_sd SD raster associated with the IsoMAP output.
#' This is the precip component of the variance term.
#' @param sd_indiv the individual component of the variance term.
#' This is a value to be determined by the user.  The standard approach is to
#' use the mean of the SDs observed among individuals at all of the calibration sites.
#' @param bird_iso a single value giving the isotope ratio found in the individual's feather.
#' @details This is a fairly low-level function.  It returns a raster of posterior probs (they are
#' scaled to sum to one over all cells).
