Statistical Modelling and Graphics Using R
The package R is a freely available software environment for statistical computing and graphics. It has the facilities to perform the most advanced statistical modelling methods, and is equally well suited to simple statistics and graphical displays. This course encourages an interactive approach to statistical analysis based on the use of R's publication-quality graphics, as well as its extensive data exploration and statistical modelling capabilities.
