sentiment

sentiment is an R package with tools for sentiment analysis including bayesian classifiers for positivity/negativity and emotion classification.

RTextTools

RTextTools is a machine learning package for automatic text classification that makes it simple for novice users to get started with machine learning, while allowing experienced users to easily experiment with different settings and algorithm combinations. The package includes nine algorithms for ensemble classification (svm, slda, boosting, bagging, random forests, glmnet, decision trees, neural networks, maximum entropy), comprehensive analytics, and thorough documentation.

spatial

Functions for kriging and point pattern analysis.

nnet

Software for feed-forward neural networks with a single hidden layer, and for multinomial log-linear models.

class

Various functions for classification.

MASS

Functions and datasets to support Venables and Ripley, 'Modern Applied Statistics with S' (4th edition, 2002).

rms

Regression modeling, testing, estimation, validation, graphics, prediction, and typesetting by storing enhanced model design attributes in the fit. rms is a collection of functions that assist with and streamline modeling. It also contains functions for binary and ordinal logistic regression models, ordinal models for continuous Y with a variety of distribution families, and the Buckley-James multiple regression model for right-censored responses, and implements penalized maximum likelihood estimation for logistic and ordinary linear models. rms works with almost any regression model, but it was especially written to work with binary or ordinal regression models, Cox regression, accelerated failure time models, ordinary linear models, the Buckley-James model, generalized least squares for serially or spatially correlated observations, generalized linear models, and quantile regression.

brglm

Fit binomial-response generalized linear models using either a modified-score approach to bias reduction or maximum penalized likelihood where penalization is by Jeffreys invariant prior. Fitting takes place by iteratively fitting a local generalized linear models on a pseudo-data representation. The interface is essentially the same as 'glm'. More flexibility is provided by the fact that custom pseudo-data representations can be specified and used for model fitting. Functions are provided for the construction of confidence intervals for the bias-reduced estimates.

polycor

Computes polychoric and polyserial correlations by quick "two-step" methods or ML, optionally with standard errors; tetrachoric and biserial correlations are special cases.

systemfit

This package contains functions for fitting simultaneous systems of linear and nonlinear equations using Ordinary Least Squares (OLS), Weighted Least Squares (WLS), Seemingly Unrelated Regressions (SUR), Two-Stage Least Squares (2SLS), Weighted Two-Stage Least Squares (W2SLS), and Three-Stage Least Squares (3SLS).
