MultiBD: Multivariate Birth-Death Processes

Computationally efficient functions to provide direct likelihood-based inference for partially-observed multivariate birth-death processes. Such processes range from a simple Yule model to the complex susceptible-infectious-removed model in disease dynamics. Efficient likelihood evaluation facilitates maximum likelihood estimation and Bayesian inference.
