Facilitates ‘PhenoCam’ Data Access and Time Series Post-Processing (phenocamr)
Programmatic interface to the ‘PhenoCam’ web services (<http://phenocam.sr.unh.edu> ). Allows for easy downloading of ‘PhenoCam’ data directly to your R workspace or your computer and provides post-processing routines for consistent and easy timeseries outlier detection, smoothing and estimation of phenological transition dates. Methods for this package are described in detail in Hufkens et. al (2018) <doi:10.1111/2041-210X.12970>.

Network of Differential Equations (ODEnetwork)
Simulates a network of ordinary differential equations of order two. The package provides an easy interface to construct networks. In addition you are able to define different external triggers to manipulate the trajectory. The method is described by Surmann, Ligges, and Wheis (2014) <doi:10.1109/ENERGYCON.2014.6850482>.

Parallel Versions of the Gradient-Based optim() Methods (optimParallel)
Provides parallel versions of the gradient-based optim() methods. The main function of the package is optimParallel(), which has the same usage and output as optim(). Using optimParallel() can significantly reduce the optimization time.
