Implementation in R

  • Thomas Rahlf
Chapter

Abstract

By now, several thousands of packages, compilations of special functions and extensions, can be downloaded from the official Internet platforms for R. Some packages offer more than a thousand functions. Some functions, such as the par() function so important for our topic, can receive more than 80 arguments. At the beginning, a system like this appears as hard to negotiate as a jungle or a maze.

In this book, we will use a very specific selection of those that have shown to be necessary or helpful for the creation of the examples. It is obvious that we cannot give a complete introduction to R; these days, there are a multitude of good books and websites available to do just that.
