The ability to interpret and act on the massive amounts of information
locked in web and enterprise systems is critical to success in the
modern business economy. R, a free software environment for
statistical computing and graphics, is a comprehensive package that
empowers developers and analysts to capture, process, and respond
intelligently to statistical information.
R in Action is the first book to present both the R system and the use
cases that make it such a compelling package for business developers.
The book begins by introducing the R language, and then moves on to
various examples illustrating R's features. Coverage includes data
mining methodologies, approaches to messy data, Rs extensive
graphical environment, useful add-on modules, and how to interface R
