PScr: Estimation for the Power Series Cure Rate Model

Provide estimation for particular cases of the power series cure rate model <doi:10.1080/03610918.2011.639971>. For the distribution of the concurrent causes the alternative models are the Poisson, logarithmic, negative binomial and Bernoulli (which are includes in the original work), the polylogarithm model <doi:10.1080/00949655.2018.1451850> and the Flory-Schulz <doi:10.3390/math10244643>. The estimation procedure is based on the EM algorithm discussed in <doi:10.1080/03610918.2016.1202276>. For the distribution of the time-to-event the alternative models are slash half-normal, Weibull, gamma and Birnbaum-Saunders distributions.
