pvaluefunctions: Creates and Plots P-Value Functions, S-Value Functions, Confidence Distributions and Confidence Densities

Contains functions to compute and plot confidence distributions, confidence densities, p-value functions and s-value (surprisal) functions for several commonly used estimates. Instead of just calculating one p-value and one confidence interval, p-value functions display p-values and confidence intervals for many levels thereby allowing to gauge the compatibility of several parameter values with the data. These methods are discussed by Infanger D, Schmidt-Trucksäss A. (2019) <doi:10.1002/sim.8293>; Poole C. (1987) <doi:10.2105/AJPH.77.2.195>; Schweder T, Hjort NL.
