## Writing reproducibly in the open with knitr

April 7, 2012
By

Sweave is something of a gold standard in reproducible research. It creates a dynamic document, written in a mix of LaTeX and R code where the results of the analysis (numbers, figures, tables) are automatically generated from the code and inserted into the resulting pdf document, making them easy to update if the data or

$What are the distributions on the positive k-dimensional quadrant with parametrizable covariance matrix? (bis)$

Wondering about the question I posted on Friday (on StackExchange, no satisfactory answer so far!), I looked further at the special case of the gamma distribution I suggested at the end. Starting from the moment conditions, and the solution is (hopefully) given by the system The resolution of this system obviously imposes conditions on those

## Citations in markdown using knitr

March 24, 2012
By

I am finding myself more and more drawn to markdown rather then tex/Rnw as my standard format (not least of which is the ease of displaying the files on github, particularly now that we have automatic image uploading). One thing I miss from latex is the citation commands. (I understand these can be provided to

$Gini Efficient Frontier$

David Varadi have recently wrote two posts about Gini Coefficient: I Dream of Gini, and Mean-Gini Optimization. I want to show how to use Gini risk measure to construct efficient frontier and compare it with alternative risk measures I discussed previously. I will use Gini mean difference risk measure – the mean of the difference

## Simple ROC plots with ggplot2 – Part 1

March 21, 2012
By

I was recently asked to summarise an analysis using a ROC (Receiver-operator characteristics) plot. R has a number of particularly good tools to produce ROC plots – ROCR, pROC and the Bioconductor package ROC to name a few. However I thought it would be a useful exercise

## Citing R packages

March 20, 2012

I’m not always careful in citing all the R packages I use. R actually has some rather nice built-in mechanisms to support this, so I really have no excuse. Here’s some quick examples: To cite the ouch package in publications use: Aaron A. King and Marguerite A. Butler (2009), ouch: Ornstein-Uhlenbeck models for phylogenetic comparative
