  Fractional polynomials ("FPs") are an automatic way of fitting non-linear, parametric effects. The R-package mfp implements a frequentist inference approach for FP models. Recently, we have proposed a Bayesian inference approach for normal FP models, which is based on the quasi-default hyper-/g/ prior for the regression coefficients [1]. This approach is implemented in the new R-package "bfp".

The R-package bfp (current version: 0.0-17) is now available on CRAN [2]. The current development version is (still) available on R-Forge [3].

For a quick start try:


and if you have more time, to reproduce results from the paper [1]:


Questions, suggestions or critique are very welcome!
