tbn : A package to deal with Tweedie Bayesian networks

General description

A collection of algorithms and functions to aid statistical modeling. This package provides several useful functions to deal with both the Tweedie Regression models (TRMs) and the Tweedie Bayesian Networks (TBNs). (TBNs) constitutes a new family of continuous Bayesian networks whose conditional distributions belong to the Tweedie class.

This package provides a full procedure for the learning of the TBN structure and parameters. It also introduces a sensitivity measure relying on the Kulback-Liebler divergence. The proposed algorithms partially relies on functions from statmod and tweedie packages.

This package exports the following functions:

Required set-up for this package

Currently, this package exists in a development version on GitHub. To use the package, you need to install it directly from GitHub using the install_github function from devtools.

You can use the following code to install the development version of tbn:

library(devtools)
install_github("km20/tbn")
library(tbn)
