fitPS: Fit Zeta Distributions to Forensic Data

Fits Zeta distributions (discrete power laws) to data that arises from forensic surveys of clothing on the presence of glass and paint in various populations. The general method is described to some extent in Coulson, S.A., Buckleton, J.S., Gummer, A.B., and Triggs, C.M. (2001) <doi:10.1016/S1355-0306(01)71847-3>, although the implementation differs.
