Hi Patricia and Alexandre,
Start R help, and select the Search Engine & Keywords link. This will  
take you to a page where keywords (including functions) are arranged  
by topic. It includes base and "recommended" packages. Also not that  
on the CRAN website (and mirrors) is a link for Task Views. There,  
packages are grouped by topic.
