Hello Owe,

aside of the 'Introduction to R' which is shipped in your R installation,
you can browse through the numerous books available:


As a start, very good and decent candidates are: [4] and [5]. Furthermore,
you can also browse through the contributed tutorials, see:
http://www.r-project.org/other-docs.html as well as approrpiate articles in
RNews: http://cran.r-project.org/doc/Rnews

Aside of all these sources the following URLs might be of interest:


Dectecting from your email signature, you might be interested in having a
look on the task views 'econometrics' and 'finance', see
http://cran.at.r-project.org/src/contrib/Views/ as additional packages
whence you are familiar with R and want to apply certain methods.

Depending in which kind of statistical/econometric field you want to utilize
R, I am pretty sure that you will find at least the relevant sources that
serve as starting point.

Hi all,

I'm new to the R-Software, and would like to know, what literature you
recommend for learning R. Online or on paper, in English or German. Any
help apreciated.
