The book begins by introducing the R language, and then moves on to various examples illustrating R's features. Coverage includes data mining methodologies, approaches to messy data, R's extensive graphical environment, useful add-on modules, and how to interface R with other software platforms and data management systems. KEY POINTS * In-depth coverage of the R environment * Dozens of practical examples * Author Rob Kabacoff has years of hands-on experience
