Prais-Winsten Estimation Procedure for AR(1) Serial Correlation (prais)
The Prais-Winsten estimation procedure takes into account serial correlation of type AR(1) in a linear model. The procedure is an iterative method that recursively estimates the beta coefficients and the error autocorrelation of the specified model until convergence of rho, i.e. the AR(1) coefficient, is attained. All estimates are obtained by OLS.

Convert Statistical Analysis Objects into Tidy Data Frames (broom)
Convert statistical analysis objects from R into tidy data frames, so that they can more easily be combined, reshaped and otherwise processed with tools like dplyr, tidyr and ggplot2. The package provides three S3 generics: tidy, which summarizes a model’s statistical findings such as coefficients of a regression; augment, which adds columns to the original data such as predictions, residuals and cluster assignments; and glance, which provides a one-row summary of model-level statistics.

Generalized Boosted Regression Models (gbm)
An implementation of extensions to Freund and Schapire’s AdaBoost algorithm and Friedman’s gradient boosting machine. Includes regression methods for least squares, absolute loss, t-distribution loss, quantile regression, logistic, multinomial logistic, Poisson, Cox proportional hazards partial likelihood, AdaBoost exponential loss, Huberized hinge loss, and Learning to Rank measures (LambdaMart).
