by Yanchang Zhao,

My book in draft titled “R and Data Mining: Examples and Case Studies” is now available on CRAN at It is scheduled to be published by Elsevier in late 2012. Its latest version can be downloaded at

The book presents many examples on data mining with R, including data exploration, decision trees, random forest, regression, clustering, time series analysis & mining, and text mining. Some other chapters in progress are social network analysis, outlier detection, association rules and sequential patterns.
