adaptMCMC: Implementation of a Generic Adaptive Monte Carlo Markov Chain Sampler

Enables sampling from arbitrary distributions if the log density is known up to a constant; a common situation in the context of Bayesian inference. The implemented sampling algorithm was proposed by Vihola (2012) <doi:10.1007/s11222-011-9269-5> and achieves often a high efficiency by tuning the proposal distributions to a user defined acceptance rate.
