Regularized Structural Equation Modeling

Uses both ridge and lasso penalties (and extensions) to penalize specific parameters in structural equation models. The package offers additional cost functions, cross validation, and other extensions beyond traditional structural equation models. Also contains a function to perform exploratory mediation (XMed).
