The Art of R Programming: A Tour of Statistical Software Design

The Art of R Programming: A Tour of Statistical Software Design PDF Download Ebook. Norman Matloff takes on a guided tour of software development with R, from basic types and data structures to advanced topics like closures, recursion, and anonymous functions. No statistical knowledge is required, and your programming skills can range from hobbyist to pro.

Along the way, you'll learn about functional and object-oriented programming, running mathematical simulations, and rearranging complex data into simpler, more useful formats. You'll also learn to create artful graphs to visualize complex data sets and functions, write more efficient code using parallel R and vectorization.

Readers also shows guidelines to interface R with C/C++ and Python for increased speed or functionality, find new packages for text analysis, image manipulation, and thousands more to squash annoying bugs with advanced debugging techniques. Whether you're designing aircraft, forecasting the weather, or you just need to tame your data, this is your guide to harnessing the power of statistical computing.

In addition to providing statistical operations, R is a general-purpose programming language, so you can use it to automate analyses and create new functions that extend the existing language features. R includes a library of several thousand user-contributed packages. It incorporates features found in object-oriented and functional programming languages. R is capable of producing beautiful graphics for your presentations, reports or articles.
