Try this very simple & illustrative example for creating an animation with the animation package:myfun <- function ( ) { n = ani.options("nmax") x = sample(1:n) ...

In undergrad I had a computer science professor that piqued my interest in applied mathematics, beginning with Conway’s Game of Life. At first, the Game of Life (not the board game) appears to be quite simple — perhaps, too simple — but it has been widely explored and is useful for modeling systems over time. It has been...

At first, the Game of Life (not the board game) appears to be quite simple — perhaps, too simple — but it has been widely explored and is useful for modeling systems over time.

The first week of April I attended an excellent workshop on biplots held by Michael Greenacre and Oleg Nenadić at the Gesis Institute in Cologne, Germany. Throughout his presentations, Michael used animations to visualize the concepts he was explaining. He also included animations in some of his papers. This inspired me to do this post

Below: two animations (same one twice, just as different speeds) I made from the highway data for the Kaggle traffic prediction competition.The data are travel times for 61 different sections of Sydney's M4 freeway, in both directions. The data comes i...
