An improved approximation is used to calculate the normalizing constants of the log-likelihoods. See the package vignette for more information.
For determining the concentration parameters the following
additonal methods were implemented:
"Newton_Fourier". The default method is now
Package SnowballC is now suggested instead of Snowball.
Package now uses registration for native (C) routines.
For determining the concentration parameters the additional
"Song_et_al_2012" was added which performs 2 Halley
A vignette documenting the use of the package and some implementation issues is added.
A() and the functions of its first and second
derivative now use the Taylor series expansion for small values of
A() modified to have now three methods
"PCF": Perron continued fraction,
"RH": using a ratio of generalized
hypergeometric series). By default, method
"PCF" is used.
The random initializations for multiple runs are now determined within the loop separately for each run.
