Using R for Statistics, 9781484201404 (148420140X), Apress, 2014

Using R for Statistics will get you the answers to most of the problems you are likely to encounter when using a variety of statistics. This book is a problem-solution primer for using R to set up your data, pose your problems and get answers using a wide array of statistical tests. The book walks you through R basics and how to use R to accomplish a wide variety statistical operations.

You'll be able to navigate the R system, enter and import data, manipulate datasets, calculate summary statistics, create statistical plots and customize their appearance, perform hypothesis tests such as the t-tests and analyses of variance, and build regression models. Examples are built around actual datasets to simulate real-world solutions, and programming basics are explained to assist those who do not have a development background.

After reading and using this guide, you'll be comfortable using and applying R to your specific statistical analyses or hypothesis tests. No prior knowledge of R or of programming is assumed, though you should have some experience with statistics.

What you’ll learn

  • How to apply statistical concepts using R and some R programming
  • How to work with data files, prepare and manipulate data, and combine and restructure datasets
  • How to summarize continuous and categorical variables
  • What is a probability distribution
  • How to create and customize plots
  • How to do hypothesis testing
  • How to build and use regression and linear models

Who this book is for

No prior knowledge of R or of programming is assumed, making this book ideal if you are more accustomed to using point-and-click style statistical packages. You should have some prior experience with statistics, however.

Non-Inertial Frames and Dirac Observables in Relativity (Cambridge Monographs on Mathematical Physics)
Non-Inertial Frames and Dirac Observables in Relativity (Cambridge Monographs on Mathematical Physics)
Interpreting general relativity relies on a proper description of non-inertial frames and Dirac observables. This book describes global non-inertial frames in special and general relativity. The first part covers special relativity and Minkowski space time, before covering general relativity, globally hyperbolic Einstein space-time, and the...
California and the Fictions of Capital (Commonwealth Center Studies in the History of American Culture)
California and the Fictions of Capital (Commonwealth Center Studies in the History of American Culture)

Between the frequently recounted events of the Gold Rush and the Great Depression stretches a period of California history that is equally crucial but less often acknowledged. In his fresh, synthetic consideration of these in-between years, George L. Henderson points specifically to the take-off of California's rural juggernaut between...
