Two things that are crucial for a wider use of R among applied researchers. The first one is data manipulation/reshaping tool. I think the package "reshape" and "reshape2" have done good job and have largely removed the barrier. The second one is ...

The tikzDevice package is quite amazing. Here are two graphs I just made, with (lower) and without (upper) using the tikzDevice package. The difference in quality is huge.Since the LaTeX source file for the figure is quite large in size and may take si...

My first introduction with LaTeX was not very pleasant. I got tired and frustrated by writing so many codes for producing a simple document; but a few days ago I could write a function for producing an animated plot in R and also could export it to my LaTeX document with all its animations intact (using animation package of...

It is possible to animate a R plot and this plot can also be exported to a LaTeX document with all its animations intact. Adding this animated plot to a PowerPoint slide or save it as a flash movie file (that you can upload to YouTube) is also possible. In this article I will try to show how these...
