First of all, a shout out to R-bloggers for adding my feed to their website! Linear programming is a valuable instrument when it comes to decision making. This post shows how R in conjunction with the lpSolveAPI package, can be used to build a linear programming model and to analyse Read more »

(This article was first published on Actuarially (Matt Malin), and kindly contributed to R-bloggers) Smartphone operating system share mosaic plot Author: Matt Malin The increasing dominance of smartphones across the market is a very common topic in technology and news sites, with analysis of operating system share and phone types often shown in the media. Stumbling across this article...

I use R aplenty in analysis and thought it might be worthwhile for some to see the typical process a relative newcomer goes through in extracting and analyzing public datasets In this instance I happen to be looking at Canadian air pollution statistics. The data I am interested in is available on the Ontario Ministry

At a talk I saw at the useR!2012 conference last month, Googler Karl Millar estimated that there are at least 200 active R users at Google, plus another 300+ occasional users participating in Google's internal R support list. But what are all these Google employees doing with R? A post from the Google Research team published on Google+ yesterday...

Influence.ME is an R extension package for R that provides tools for detecting influential data in multilevel regression models. It is developed by Rense Nieuwenhuis (that’s me), Manfred te Grotenhuis, and Ben Pelzer. Recently, a new version (0.9) was uploaded ...

A few years ago I was involved in analysing some time-course microarray data. Our biological collaborators were interested in how we analysed their data, so this lead to a creation of tutorial, which in turn lead to a paper. When we submitted the paper, one the referees “suggested” that we write the paper using Sweave;

Chaos. Hectic, seemingly unpredictable, complex dynamics. In a word: fun. I usually stick to the warm and fuzzy world of stochasticity and probability distributions, but this post will be (almost) entirely devoid of randomness. While chaotic dynamics are entirely deterministic, their sensitivity to initial conditions can trick the observer into seeing iid. In ecology, chaotic
