The R Book
R is a high-level language and an environment for data analysis and graphics. The design of R was heavily influenced by two existing languages: Becker, Chambers and Wilks’ S and Sussman’s Scheme. The resulting language is very similar in appearance to S, but the underlying implementation and semantics are derived from Scheme. This...
What Makes Your Brain Happy and Why You Should Do the Opposite
