Fractional polynomials ("FPs") are an automatic way of fitting
non-linear, parametric effects. The R-package mfp implements a
frequentist inference approach for FP models. Recently, we have proposed
a Bayesian inference approach for normal FP models, which is based on
the quasi-default hyper-/g/ prior for the regression coefficients .
This approach is implemented in the new R-package "bfp".
The R-package bfp (current version: 0.0-17) is now available on CRAN .
The current development version is (still) available on R-Forge .
For a quick start try:
and if you have more time, to reproduce results from the paper :
Questions, suggestions or critique are very welcome!
