albatross: PARAFAC Analysis of Fluorescence Excitation-Emission Matrices

Perform parallel factor analysis (PARAFAC: Hitchcock, 1927) <doi:10.1002/sapm192761164> on fluorescence excitation-emission matrices (FEEMs): handle scattering signal and inner filter effect, scale the dataset, fit the model; perform split-half validation or jack-knifing. A modified approach called "randomised split-half" is also available. The package has a low dependency footprint (only two direct dependencies not in core or recommended; four total non-core/recommended dependencies) and has been tested on a wide range of R versions (including R as old as 3.3.3 from Debian Stretch).
