Short introduction to R in Finance

March 5, 2009

Adam Gehr of DePaul University’s Finance Department had organized a panel
session about R in Finance at the Midwest Finance Association’s 58th Annual
which is happening this week here in Chicago.

I just posted my slides on my presentations
page. The slides give a brief overview of R, the CRAN network and the by now over 1600
packages, mention the Finance Task
, briefly present four different packages (or package sets) and of
course beat the drum for our upcoming
conference that will take place here in Chicago at the end of
next month.
