PAWL package on CRAN

Posted in Geek, R by Pierre Jacob on 26 October 2011

The PAWL package (which I talked about there, and which implements the parallel adaptive Wang-Landau algorithm and adaptive Metropolis-Hastings for comparison) is now on CRAN!

which means that within R you can easily install it by typing

Isn’t that amazing? It’s just amazing. Kudos to the CRAN team for their quickness and their help.

    Congratulation for the CRAN package release. It would be great if you can provide a vinigette that provide some basic example, and illustration on how different is the parallel adaptive Wang-Landau algorithm compared to the basic and adaptive Metropolis-Hastings.

      Cheers. The algorithms themselves are explained at length in an article available here:
      The package contains examples through the “demo” format. You can list them with:
      demo(package = “PAWL”)
      Finally, other examples are in the “inst” subfolder of the package.

      But of course I agree, it’d be better with a proper vignette.
