matrixdist: Statistics for Matrix Distributions

Tools for phase-type distributions including the following variants: continuous, discrete, multivariate, in-homogeneous, right-censored, and regression. Methods for functional evaluation, simulation and estimation using the expectation-maximization (EM) algorithm are provided for all models. The methods of this package are based on the following references. Asmussen, S., Nerman, O., & Olsson, M. (1996) <>, Olsson, M. (1996) <>, Albrecher, H., & Bladt, M.
