The R Book (2nd Edition)

Highly winning and renowned textual content featuring an intensive and complete consultant for all R clients

The R language is famous as probably the most robust and versatile statistical software program applications, permitting clients to use many statistical strategies that will be very unlikely with out such software program to assist enforce such huge facts units. R has turn into an important device for realizing and conducting research.

This edition:
• beneficial properties complete color textual content and large pictures throughout.
• Introduces a transparent constitution with numbered part headings to assist readers find details extra efficiently.
• seems on the evolution of R during the last 5 years.
• includes a new bankruptcy on Bayesian research and Meta-Analysis.
• offers a completely revised and up-to-date bibliography and reference section.
• Is supported via an accompanying web site permitting examples from the textual content to be run via the user.

Praise for the 1st edition:
'. .. while you're an R consumer or wannabe R person, this article is the one who could be in your shelf. The breadth of issues coated is unsurpassed in terms of texts on info research in R. ' (The American Statistician, August 2008)
'The High-level software program language of R is environment criteria in quantitative research. And now anyone can familiarize yourself with it because of The R e-book. .. ' (Professional Pensions, July 2007)

Listing 2-1. Code for Project 1 II Project 1 - LED Flasher int ledPin = 10j void setup() { pinMode(ledPin, OUTPUT)j } void Loop() { digitaIWrite(ledPin, HIGH)j delay(1000)j digitaIWrite(ledPin, LOW)j delay(1000)j } Press the Verify/Compile button at the top of the IDE to make sure there are no errors in your code. If this is successful, click the Upload button to upload the code to your Arduino. If you have done everything right, you should now see the red LED on the breadboard flashing on and off every second.

Similarly, the Arduino will not receive any data sent unless you have coded it to do so. Finally, the black area is where your serial data will be displayed. In the image above, the Arduino is running the ASCIITable sketch (from the Communications example). This program outputs ASCII characters from the Arduino via serial (the USBcable) to the PC where the serial monitor then displays them. To start the serial monitor, press the Serial Monitor button. To stop it, press the Stop button. On a Mac or in Linux, the Arduino board will reset itself (rerun the code from the beginning) when you click the Serial Monitor button.
