## Summary

This R package lets you make estimates (with confidence intervals) using a generalized additive model (GAM) with penalized basis splines (P-splines). It was initiall developed for infectious disease outbreak research, but it applies to other domains as well.

This package can handle two types of estimates:

- Scalar estimates, in which a single numerical outcome is calculated from the system (for example, the time when an infectious disease outbreak reaches its peak)
- Time series estimates, in which a time series of outcomes is calculated from the system (for example, the cumulative incidence during an outbreak).

## Installation

```
install.packages('pspline.inference')

```
