## 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).
