sensR: Thurstonian Models for Sensory Discrimination

Provides methods for sensory discrimination methods; duotrio, tetrad, triangle, 2-AFC, 3-AFC, A-not A, same-different, 2-AC and degree-of-difference. This enables the calculation of d-primes, standard errors of d-primes, sample size and power computations, and comparisons of different d-primes. Methods for profile likelihood confidence intervals and plotting are included. Most methods are described in Brockhoff, P.B. and Christensen, R.H.B. (2010) <doi:10.1016/j.foodqual.2009.04.003>.
