Meeting Date: 
Wednesday, January 10th 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM
Presenter: 
Joshua Korenblat

Rlogo.pngJoshua Korenblat will cover cleaning datasets using R packages. R is a language and environment for statistical computing and graphics. R 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. R is an integrated suite of software facilities for data manipulation, calculation and graphical display and includes

  • an effective data handling and storage facility,
  • a suite of operators for calculations on arrays, in particular matrices,
  • a large, coherent, integrated collection of intermediate tools for data analysis,
  • graphical facilities for data analysis and display either on-screen or on hardcopy, and
  • a well-developed, simple and effective programming language which includes conditionals, loops, user-defined recursive functions and input and output facilities.
