valorate: Velocity and Accuracy of the LOg-RAnk TEst

The algorithm implemented in this package was designed to quickly estimates the distribution of the log-rank especially for heavy unbalanced groups. VALORATE estimates the null distribution and the p-value of the log-rank test based on a recent formulation. For a given number of alterations that define the size of survival groups, the estimation involves a weighted sum of distributions that are conditional on a co-occurrence term where mutations and events are both present. The estimation of conditional distributions is quite fast allowing the analysis of large datasets in few minutes <>.
