Information Tools for analyze Skew-Elliptical distributions and related models.

http://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/skewtools

This package include functions related to following topics: 1. Information Theory: Shannon Entropy and Kullback-Leibler divergence for Multivariate Skew-Elliptical distributions. 2. Estimation of Growth models parameters (Von Bertalanffy, Gompertz, Logistic and Richards) using the robust ECME method via Heteroscedastic Nonlinear Regression Growth model with scale mixture of Skew-Normal distributions (Normal, T-Student, Skew-Normal and Skew-t). Include Bootstrap and Jackknife methods to estimate the Variance-Covariance matrix and Local Influence
