mvnfast: Fast multivariate normal methods

The package provides computationally efficient tools related to the multivariate normal distribution. The main functionalities are: simulating multivariate normal random vectors, evaluating multivariate normal densities and Mahalanobis distances. These tools are very efficient thanks to the use of C++ code and of the OpenMP API.
