The bigmemory is an excellent package for handling big matrix in R. There are several sister packages provided by "The Bigmemory Project": biganalytics for analysis, bigtabulate for tabulation, bigalgebra for linear algebra functionality, synchronicity for synchronization via mutexes and interprocess communication and message passing.biganalytics provides a few functions for analysis: linear regression model, generalized linear regression model, and...

Putting Robust Standard Errors into LaTeX Tables: An Extension of mtable

I recently discovered the mtable() command in the memisc library and its use with toLatex() to produce nice summary output for lm and glm objects in a nicely formatted table like this:Once you have your linear model objects, all you need is one command...

Estimate Gene Diversity

I provide here an R function to estimate gene diversity of diallelic sites (e.g. SNPs), given allele frequencies at each segregating site. The function takes three input parameters: maf: a numeric value (or vector) representing minor allele frequency at each site. Default is 0.5 nreads: size of each resampling experiment. Default is 10000. nreplicates: Number

Ecological SEMs and Composite Variables: What, Why, and How

I’m a HUGE fan of Structural Equation Modeling. Heck, I’ve even begun teaching short SEM workshops. (seriously, if you want, email me and we’ll talk). For those of you unfamiliar with the technique, it’s awesome for three main reasons. It’s a method of teasing apart direct and indirect interactions in your data. It allows you

While we were at R/Finance in Chicago over the weekend (more on that later), it was a great pleasure to meet in person Paul Teetor, author of the R Cookbook (published by O'Reilly). If you haven't picked it up yet, I recommend checking it out: if you already have a basic familiarity of the R syntax, but want to...

Example 8.36: Quadratic equation with real roots

We often simulate data in SAS or R to confirm analytical results. For example, consider the following problem from the excellent text by Rice:Let U1, U2, and U3 be independent random variables uniform on . What is the probability that the roots...
