METECH Seminar: Introduction to Programming and Statistical Analysis with R (Participants strongly encouraged to bring own laptop with R installed)
Nevena Zhelyazkova, UNU-Maastricht
R is a free software environment for statistical computing, programming and graphics. It provides a wide variety of statistical (linear and nonlinear modelling, classical statistical tests, time-series analysis, classification, clustering, ...) and graphical techniques, and is highly extensible.
Many extension packages such as iGraph are based on R. Anyone who is not familiar with R and is planning to attend the Dec. 3 seminar on network analysis using iGraph is strongly encouraged to attend this seminar.
