           One-day Course in R

       University of Hertfordshire

         Thursday 24th April 2003


R is a freely-available computer package for statistics used by
professional statisticians. The command language used by R is very
similar to that used by S-PLUS, and this course also acts as an
introduction to the command language used by this package.

R can carry out standard statistical analyses, and also has powerful
facilities for users to create their own commands for non-standard
analyses or for new statistical methods. Users of R frequently publish
the code for their commands on the internet for others to use.

The main topics covered by the course are:

Obtaining the R package from the internet
Data entry and simple summary statistics
Basic statistical procedures
Obtaining and using commands designed by other researchers
Developing your own commands for non-standard analyses

Course fee: £295 including zero V.A.T.
