BiasedUrn: Biased Urn Model Distributions

Statistical models of biased sampling in the form of univariate and multivariate noncentral hypergeometric distributions, including Wallenius' noncentral hypergeometric distribution and Fisher's noncentral hypergeometric distribution. See vignette("UrnTheory") for explanation of these distributions. Literature: Fog, A. (2008a). Calculation Methods for Wallenius' Noncentral Hypergeometric Distribution, Communications in Statistics, Simulation and Computation, 37(2) <doi:10.1080/03610910701790269>. Fog, A. (2008b).
