A recent survey reported in Science ("Defeating Creationism in the Courtroom, but not in the Classroom"), suggests that high school teachers are not teaching evolution to the fullest extent, say, that grammar is being taught in the English c...

R news and tutorials contributed by (552) R bloggers

Hi again, Recently, Julyan blogged about allocating memory first before modifying R objects. That’s a very useful trick that applies to most programming languages. Tonight I want to blog about something a bit more complicated and more specific to R, but which can lead to massive speed-ups: interfacing C/C++ within R codes. The rationale behind

In a recent post, I asked for suggestions for introductory R computing books. In particular, I was looking for books that: Assume no prior knowledge of programming. Assume very little knowledge of statistics. For example, no regression. Are cheap, since they are for undergraduate students. Some of my cons aren’t really downsides as such. Rather,

Simple root finding and one dimensional integrals algorithms were implemented in previous posts.These algorithms can be used to estimate the cumulative probabilities and quantiles.Here, take normal distribution as an example.Read More: 281 Words Totally
