binGroup2: Identification and Estimation using Group Testing

Methods for the group testing identification problem: 1) Operating characteristics (e.g., expected number of tests) for commonly used hierarchical and array-based algorithms, and 2) Optimal testing configurations for these same algorithms. Calculations for algorithms with single-disease assays are described in Hitt et al. (2019) <doi:10.1002/sim.8341> and with multiplex assays are described in Bilder et al. (2019) <doi:10.1111/biom.12988> and Hou et al. (2020) <doi:10.1093/biostatistics/kxy058>. Methods for the group testing estimation problem: 1) Estimation and inference procedures for an overall prevalence, and 2) Regression modeling for commonly used hierarchical and array-based algorithms. Estimation and confidence interval methods are described in Biggerstaff (2008) <doi:10.1198/108571108X379055> and Hepworth & Biggerstaff (2017) <doi:10.1007/s13253-017-0297-2>. Regression modeling is described in Xie (2001) <doi:10.1002/sim.817>.
