Description

Computation of Colless-Like, Sackin and cophenetic balance indices of a phylogenetic tree and study of the distribution of these balance indices under the alpha-gamma model. For more details see A. Mir, F. Rossello, L. Rotger (2013) <doi:10.1016/j.mbs.2012.10.005>, M. J. Sackin (1972) <doi:10.1093/sysbio/21.2.225>, D. H. Colless (1982) <doi:10.2307/2413420>.
