This Friday, March 21st, the School of Natural Sciences will be having Raeann Mettler & Jake Alsdurf present at our Science Lecture Series. Their topic will be “Using R in Biology, Business, and Psychology”. Please try to attend as well as encourage students to attend. Don’t know what “R” is? See below.
R is a free software environment for statistical computing and graphics.
The R environment
R is an integrated suite of software facilities for data manipulation, calculation and graphical display. It includes
• an effective data handling and storage facility,
• a suite of operators for calculations on arrays, in particular matrices,
• a large, coherent, integrated collection of intermediate tools for data analysis,
• graphical facilities for data analysis and display either on-screen or on hardcopy, and
• a well-developed, simple and effective programming language which includes conditionals, loops, user-defined recursive functions and input and output facilities.
The term "environment" is intended to characterize it as a fully planned and coherent system, rather than an incremental accretion of very specific and inflexible tools, as is frequently the case with other data analysis software.
