Running R on a Linux server in headless mode (i.e. producing graphics without XWindows running) can be tricky. Some people recommend using a virtual X framebuffer. However, I’ve found that the best approach (at least im my opinion) is to use the ...

Rapid urban and sub-urban expansion in the San Joaquin Valley have resulted in the loss of millions of acres of prime farmland in the last 100 years. Approximately 11% of class 1 (irrigated) land and 7% of class 2 land have already been paved over in the Fresno-Madera region (first image below). Recent projections in the expansion of urban...

so these articles are ‘old news,’ but here i am to blog it down before i forget. First article is entitled “For Today’s Graduate, Just One Word – Statistics,” and the second article is entitled “Data Analysts Captivated by R’s Power.” It really does feel re-enforcing and motivating when the NY Times write about your

I found this articles in The New York Times" and I thought it would be nice to share them, By ASHLEE VANCE published on January 6, 2009, check them out, both are pretty interesting:http://www.nytimes.com/2009/01/07/technology/business-computing/07progr...

This is the 11th post in a series attempting to recreate the figures in Lattice: Multivariate Data Visualization with R (R code available here) with ggplot2. Previous parts in this series: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, Part 6, Part 7, Part 8, Part 9, Part 10. Chapter 11 – Manipulating the “trellis”

A maintenance fix was applied to random: following the changes in release 0.2.0 a few months ago that reflected changes at the random.org site, we needed to make one more change in randomSequence. Thanks for Lynn Amon for spotting this. The new pac...

As indicated in this thread, completion after the dollar operator can be customized by defining a custom names method. Here I am showing how to take advantage of this to display fields and methods of java references (jobjRef objects from the rJava ...

The Cox-Stuart test is defined as a little powerful test (power equal to 0.78), but very robust for the trend analysis. It is therefore applicable to a wide variety of situations, to get an idea of the evolution of values obtained. The proposed method is based on the binomial distribution. In R there is no function to perform a...

The one-way analysis of variance is a useful technique to verify if the means of more groups are equals. But this analysis may not be very useful for more complex problems. For example, it may be necessary to take into account two factors of variability to determine if the averages between the groups depend on the group classification...

Two-allele model has alleles A1 and A2 and genotypes A1A1, A1A2, and A2A2. This model can be fitted using only additive effect (restricted model) or additve+dominance effect. (full model) The later model has one parameter more than the former. I was using this model lately and got weird DIC results - the full model had less number...

So today I compiled 64 bit R 2.91 on Mac OS X 10.5.7 in order to get maximum speed for my analyses. The speed increase I got was 15-25 %, when I ran some tests with matrix calculation and intensive loops. Note that you can also download optimized binaries from http://r.research.att.com/, although they are

R is terrific, of course, for all your statistical needs. But those data structures! “Everything is a list.” Leading to such wondrous ways to access variables as “p <- Meta(gds)$platform", or "last <- mylist]])]". Sometimes, you want something more familiar. An array, a hash, a hash of arrays. Or, you may

We use the regression analysis when, from the data sample, we want to derive a statistical model that predicts the values of a variable (Y, dependent) from the values of another variable (X, independent). The linear regression, which is the simplest and most frequent relationship between two quantitative variables, can be positive (when X increase, Y increase too) or...
