Statistical Seismology Library (SSLib)

The Statistical Seismology Library (SSLib) is a collection of earthquake hypocentral catalogues and R functions to analyse the catalogues. The analyses include graphical data displays, fitting of point process models, estimation of fractal dimensions, and routines to apply the M8 Algorithm to given datasets. The Statistical Seismology Library is written in the R Language, and consists of a number of R packages. Each package has its own Users Manual that contains documentation for all functions within that package.
