potts: Markov Chain Monte Carlo for Potts Models

Do Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) simulation of Potts models (Potts, 1952, <doi:10.1017/S0305004100027419>), which are the multi-color generalization of Ising models (so, as as special case, also simulates Ising models). Use the Swendsen-Wang algorithm (Swendsen and Wang, 1987, <doi:10.1103/PhysRevLett.58.86>) so MCMC is fast. Do maximum composite likelihood estimation of parameters (Besag, 1975, <doi:10.2307/2987782>, Lindsay, 1988, <doi:10.1090/conm/080>).
