Installing pomp in R

leave a comment »

pomp (partially-observed Markov processes) is a package in R for simulating stochastic and deterministic mathematical models as well as to infer parameters using observed data — also see the r-forge page. I will provide (very) brief install instructions here and provide examples of use in later posts.

Install by going to the command line and starting R using sudo (I assume you are using Ubuntu here):

sudo R

Once in R, type:

install.packages('pomp', dep = TRUE)

The pomp package and other packages it requires will be downoaded, compiled, and installed. You can test that pomp is available by loading the package in an R session:
