## ggplot2 Version of Figures in “25 Recipes for Getting Started with R”

August 16, 2011

In order to provide an option to compare graphs produced by basic internal plot function and ggplot2, I recreated the figures in the book, 25 Recipes for Getting Started with R, with ggplot2. The code used to create the images is in separate paragraphs, allowing easy comparison. Read...

## On Dirichlet’s approximation theorem

June 19, 2011
By

This is one of my favourites: in 1840 the German mathematician Dirichlet proved an elegant theorem, known as “Dirichlet’s approximation theorem“. The proof is surprisingly simple, but the usefulness of the proposition in some fields of mathematics, such as Diophantine analysis is remarkable. It goes as follows: Let a be a real number and N

## Always learn and never know

I have been using R for about two years, with no previous coding background. So, I feel like the title says, “always learn and never know”. This time, I decided to use R to study a simple, non-statistical problem that came up some time ago. Suppose the exponential function 2^x and the parabola x^2. One

Suppose the following game with two players: In every round, the two players pick a random number, each. Instead of using a dice, they pick a number from an interval. Player A picks a number from and player B from . Variation 1. The greater number wins. Who is more likely to win? It

## Music file graphs with R

Today we will use R to extract some interesting summary statistics regarding the music files stored in the computer. For all mp3 files I keep certain metadata in their ID3 tag. We will use this information to explore the distribution of music files with respect to the year of release. All the following are done
