Markov Chain Monte Carlo

Simulates continuous distributions of random vectors using Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC). Users specify the distribution by an R function that evaluates the log unnormalized density. Algorithms are random walk Metropolis algorithm (function metrop), simulated tempering (function temper), and morphometric random walk Metropolis (Johnson and Geyer, 2012, , function morph.metrop), which achieves geometric ergodicity by change of variable.
