Analyzing data

ByVictor A. Bloomfield

In the final two chapters we focus on data analysis, a topic for which R is particularly well-suited—indeed, for which it was initially developed and about which most of the literature on R is concerned. However, rather than refer the reader to other resources, it seems reasonable to present here at least a brief survey of some of the major topics, recognizing that scientists and engineers generally spend much of their time dealing with real data, not just developing numerical simulations.
