samc: Spatial Absorbing Markov Chains

Implements functions for working with absorbing Markov chains. The implementation is based on the framework described in "Toward a unified framework for connectivity that disentangles movement and mortality in space and time" by Fletcher et al. (2019) <doi:10.1111/ele.13333>, which applies them to spatial ecology. This framework incorporates both resistance and absorption with spatial absorbing Markov chains (SAMC) to provide several short-term and long-term predictions for metrics related to connectivity in landscapes. Despite the ecological context of the framework, this package can be used in any application of absorbing Markov chains.
