  • Rizopoulos (2012)

In addition, this material is possible due to the work of persons who contribute greatly to the open source software with incredible pieces of software: Xie (2015), Xie (2016), Allaire et al. (2017) and R Core Team (2017). The icons used in the notes were designed by Gregor Cresnar from Flaticon. Some inspiration taken from the repository egarpor/nonpar-eafit. Feedback, comments and some help from Luís Meira-Machado and Nora M. Villanueva.
