This package provides implementations of some general-purpose random-walk based adaptive MCMC algorithms, including the following:
Adaptive Metropolis, proposal covariance adaptation, (Haario, Saksman and Tamminen, 2001, and Andrieu and Moulines, 2006)
Adaptive scaling Metropolis, acceptance rate adaptation for scale (e.g. as in Andrieu and Thoms, 2008, and Atchadé and Fort, 2010)
Robust Adaptive Metropolis, acceptance rate adaptation for shape (Vihola, 2012)
Adaptive Parallel Tempering, acceptance rate adaptation for temperature levels (Miasojedow, Moulines and Vihola, 2013)
The aim of the package is to provide a simple and modular general-purpose implementation, which may be easily used to sample from a log-target density, but also used in a variety of custom settings.

Keywords: sampling (statistical methods); stochastic processes; Markov chains; Monte Carlo methods; algorithms
