The R software iLaplace

Improved Laplace approximation for integrals of unimodal functions. The method requires user-supplied R functions for: the integrand, its gradient and its Hessian matrix. The computations are run in parallel.

The R package ProbYX

The package ProbYX can be used for inference on the stress-strength reliability model R = P(Y min X), with Y, X independent continuous random variables. It computes confidence intervals and point estimates for R,  under parametric model assumptions (Gaussian and exponential models).
