PSIMEX: SIMEX Algorithm on Pedigree Structures

Generalization of the SIMEX algorithm from Cook & Stefanski (1994) <doi:10.2307/2290994> for the calculation of inbreeding depression or heritability on pedigree structures affected by missing or misassigned paternities. It simulates errors and tracks the behavior of the estimate as a function of the error proportion. It extrapolates back a true value corresponding to the null error rate.
