Dear List

please find on CRAN a new R bundle, BACCO, for Bayesian analysis of
random functions, comprising two packages: emulator and calibrator.

Package calibrator implements:

“Bayesian calibration of computer models”, M. C. Kennedy and A.  
O'Hagan 2001. Journal of the Royal Statistical Society B, 63(3)  

and package emulator implements:
J. Oakley 2004. “Estimating percentiles of uncertain computer code  
outputs”. Applied Statistics, 53(1), pp89-93.

J. Oakley and A. O'Hagan, 2002. “Bayesian Inference for the  
Uncertainty Distribution of Computer Model Outputs”, Biometrika 89 
(4), pp769-784

The bundle is described in:

R. K. S. Hankin 2005. “Introducing BACCO, an R bundle for Bayesian  
analysis of computer code output”, Journal of Statistical Software, 14
