cosa: Bound Constrained Optimal Sample Allocation

Implements bound constrained optimal sample allocation (BCOSA) framework described in Bulus & Dong (2019) <doi:10.1080/00220973.2019.1636197> for power analysis of multilevel regression discontinuity designs (MRDDs) and multilevel randomized trials (MRTs) with continuous outcomes. Separate tools for statistical power and minimum detectable effect size computations are provided.
