FME  Calibration, Sensitivity and Monte Carlo Analysis in R
'FME' is an addon package for the open source data analysis
system R designed for confronting a
numerical mathematical model with data
What is in FME?
FME contains functions for sensitivity and Monte Carlo analysis, for
parameter identifiability, and for fitting a model to data.
It provides a Markovchain based method to estimate parameter confidence intervals.
Although its main focus is on mathematical systems that consist of
differential equations, FME can deal with other types of models.

This Special
Interest Group for Dynamic Simulation Models in R is a
forum for discussing the use of R for implementation, simulation and
analysis of dynamic simulation models. The list covers differential
equation models as well as other dynamic systems in different
application areas: natural sciences, engineering, economy and many
others.
