covsim: VITA, IG and PLSIM Simulation for Given Covariance and Marginals

User specifies population covariance matrix. Marginal information may be fully specified, for which the package implements the VITA (VIne-To-Anything) algorithm. Groenneberg and Foldnes (2017) <doi:10.1007/s11336-017-9569-6>. Alternatively, marginal skewness and kurtosis may be specified, for which the package implements the IG (independent generator) and PLSIM (piecewise linear) algorithms. Foldnes and Olsson (2016) <doi:10.1080/00273171.2015.1133274>. Foldnes and Groenneberg (2021).
