bridgedist: An Implementation of the Bridge Distribution with Logit-Link as in Wang and Louis (2003)

An implementation of the bridge distribution with logit-link in R. In Wang and Louis (2003) <doi:10.1093/biomet/90.4.765>, such a univariate bridge distribution was derived as the distribution of the random intercept that 'bridged' a marginal logistic regression and a conditional logistic regression. The conditional and marginal regression coefficients are a scalar multiple of each other. Such is not the case if the random intercept distribution was Gaussian.
