'… with this book, you can be up and running, doing very advanced work with R in a matter of minutes. Using a series of code examples, the authors take you through many of the basic capabilities of the package. All that is needed to follow the examples is a basic understanding of control constructs such as the if-then, loops and functions as well as knowledge of the underlying mathematics.' Charles Ashbacher, Journal of Recreational Mathematics
The only introduction you'll need to start programming in R.
