Hi Ilya,
If you're looking for general information about statistical tests, etc., you'll probably need to buy yourself a textbook. There are online pages (http://homes.msi.ucsb.edu/~byrnes/rtutorial.html is a good one), but a good textbook is probably better. It's a bit old, but I still recommend Fowler et al. (1998) for those who are starting out with statistical testing: Fowler J, Cohen L & Jarvis P (1998). Practical statistics for field biology (2nd ed.). Wiley, Chichester, UK.

I hope, i'm doing right, writing here.

I have a question about the R statistical formulas: were can I look,
what are they? E. g. I'd like to know which exactly mathematical formula
is used in Wilcoxon test, and others. Is there somewhere on the Internet
information about that?

Thanks a lot!
