BRISC

Overview

Bootstrap for Rapid Inference on Spatial Covariances: Provides parameter estimates and bootstrap based confidence intervals for all parameters in a Gaussian Process based spatial regression model.

Installation

In order to download the package, please run the following command in R:

if (!require("devtools")) install.packages("devtools")
devtools::install_github("ArkajyotiSaha/BRISC")

Function description

For help on the functions in Brisc please use the following:

?BRISC_estimation #(for estimation)

?BRISC_bootstrap #(for bootstrap)

?BRISC_prediction #(for prediction)

Note

The code of package "liblbfgs (Naoaki Okazaki)" are also available here for user convenience. Some code snippets are borrowed from R package "spNNGP (Andrew Finley et al.)". The code for approximate MMD ordering is borrowed from https://github.com/joeguinness/gp_reorder after minor modifications. The code for configure.ac is borrowed from https://github.com/cran/ARTP2/blob/master/configure.ac with minor adaptations. The code for covariance models other than exponential model are in beta testing stage.
