fmcmc: A friendly MCMC framework

Provides a friendly (flexible) Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) framework for implementing Metropolis-Hastings algorithm in a modular way allowing users to specify automatic convergence checker, personalized transition kernels, and out-of-the-box multiple MCMC chains using parallel computing. Most of the methods implemented in this package can be found in Brooks et al. (2011, ISBN 9781420079425).
