Feature Selection (Including Multiple Solutions) and Bayesian Networks

Many feature selection methods for a wide range of response variables, including minimal, statistically-equivalent and equally-predictive feature subsets. Bayesian network algorithms and related functions are also included. The package name 'MXM' stands for "Mens eX Machina", meaning "Mind from the Machine" in Latin.
