Graphical User Interface for the Package ‘SPOT’ (spotGUI)
A graphical user interface for the Sequential Parameter Optimization Toolbox (package ‘SPOT’). It includes a quick, graphical setup for spot, interactive 3D plots, export possibilities and more.

Causal Functional Mediation Analysis (cfma)
Performs causal functional mediation analysis (CFMA) for functional treatment, functional mediator, and functional outcome. This package includes two functional mediation model types: (1) a concurrent mediation model and (2) a historical influence mediation model. See Zhao et al. (2018), Functional Mediation Analysis with an Application to Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging Data, <arXiv:1805.06923> for details.

Spatially Balanced Samples (Spbsampling)
Provides functions to draw spatially balanced samples. It contains fast implementations (C++ via ‘Rcpp’) of the included sampling methods. In particular, the algorithms to draw spatially balanced samples are pwd() and swd(). These methods use a probability distribution, proportional to the within sample distance. See Benedetti R and Piersimoni F (2017) <doi:10.1002/bimj.201600194> for details. Moreover, there is a function hpwd(), which is a heuristic method to achieve approximated samples obtained by pwd() in a faster way. See Benedetti R and Piersimoni F (2017) <arXiv:1710.09116> for details. Finally, there are two functions, stprod() and stsum(), useful to standardize distance matrices in order to achieve fixed sample size using, respectively, the functions pwd() and swd().
