Description: An R package for modeling and simulating generalized spherical and related distributions. A flexible class of multivariate generalized spherical distributions with star-shaped level sets is developed. To work in dimension above two requires tools from computational geometry and multivariate numerical integration. An algorithm to approximately simulate from these star-shaped distributions is developed; it also works for simulating from more general tessellations. These techniques are implemented in the R package gensphere.
