Tutorial Details: Introduction to R and S-PLUS

Date: Tuesday, September 28, 2004, 01:00 pm - 03:00 pm
Location: 402 Walter
Instructor(s): Haoyu Yu, MSI

Statistics are very important to many scientific research projects. R and S-PLUS are powerful statistical computing environments available at the Supercomputing Institute. Bell Laboratories developed the S language and environment in the 1980s for data analysis. S was further developed into a commercial product called S-PLUS. R is a dialect of the S language.

This tutorial will demonstrate how to read and manipulate data in the R and S-PLUS environments. In addition, attendees will learn how to perform basic statistical analysis and how to produce graphics with the software packages.
