Harrell, F.E. Regression Modeling Strategies, with Applications to
Linear Models, Survival Analysis and Logistic
Regression
2001   book URL 
Abstract: There are many books that are excellent sources of
knowledge about individual statistical tools (survival
models, general linear models, etc.), but the art of
data analysis is about choosing and using multiple
tools. In the words of Chatfield ``... students
typically know the technical details of regression for
example, but not necessarily when and how to apply it.
This argues the need for a better balance in the
literature and in statistical teaching between
techniques and problem solving strategies.'' Whether
analyzing risk factors, adjusting for biases in
observational studies, or developing predictive
models, there are common problems that few regression
texts address. For example, there are missing data in
the majority of datasets one is likely to encounter
(other than those used in textbooks!) but most
regression texts do not include methods for dealing
with such data effectively, and texts on missing data
do not cover regression modeling.

Faraway, J.J. Linear Models with R 2004   book URL 
Abstract: The book focuses on the practice of regression and
analysis of variance. It clearly demonstrates the
different methods available and in which situations
each one applies. It covers all of the standard
topics, from the basics of estimation to missing data,
factorial designs, and block designs, but it also
includes discussion of topics, such as model
uncertainty, rarely addressed in books of this type.
The presentation incorporates an abundance of examples
that clarify both the use of each technique and the
conclusions one can draw from the results.

Mixed Effects and Nonparametric Regression Models
2006   book URL 
Abstract: This book surveys the techniques that grow from the
regression model, presenting three extensions to that
framework: generalized linear models (GLMs), mixed
effect models, and nonparametric regression
models. The author's treatment is thoroughly modern
and covers topics that include GLM diagnostics,
generalized linear mixed models, trees, and even the
use of neural networks in statistics. To demonstrate
the interplay of theory and practice, throughout the
book the author weaves the use of the R software
environment to analyze the data of real examples,
providing all of the R commands necessary to reproduce
the analyses.

Albert, J. Bayesian Computation with R 2007   book  
Abstract: Bayesian Computation with R introduces Bayesian
modeling by the use of computation using the R
language. The early chapters present the basic tenets
of Bayesian thinking by use of familiar one and
two-parameter inferential problems. Bayesian
computational methods such as Laplace's method,
rejection sampling, and the SIR algorithm are
illustrated in the context of a random effects model.
The construction and implementation of Markov Chain
Monte Carlo (MCMC) methods is introduced. These
simulation-based algorithms are implemented for a
variety of Bayesian applications such as normal and
binary response regression, hierarchical modeling,
order-restricted inference, and robust modeling.
Algorithms written in R are used to develop Bayesian
tests and assess Bayesian models by use of the
posterior predictive distribution. The use of R to
interface with WinBUGS, a popular MCMC computing
language, is described with several illustrative
examples.

Marin, J.-M. and Robert, C.P. Bayesian Core: A Practical Approach to Computational
Bayesian Statistics
2007   book  
Abstract: This Bayesian modeling book is intended for
practitioners and applied statisticians looking for a
self-contained entry to computational Bayesian
statistics. Focusing on standard statistical models
and backed up by discussed real datasets available
from the book website, it provides an operational
methodology for conducting Bayesian inference, rather
than focusing on its theoretical justifications.
Special attention is paid to the derivation of prior
distributions in each case and specific reference
solutions are given for each of the models.
Similarly, computational details are worked out to
lead the reader towards an effective programming of
the methods given in the book. While R programs are
provided on the book website and R hints are given in
the computational sections of the book, The Bayesian
Core requires no knowledge of the R language and it
can be read and used with any other programming
language.

Cook, D. and Swayne, D.F. Interactive and Dynamic Graphics for Data Analysis 2007   book  
Abstract: This richly illustrated book describes the use of
interactive and dynamic graphics as part of
multidimensional data analysis. Chapters include
clustering, supervised classification, and working
with missing values. A variety of plots and
interaction methods are used in each analysis, often
starting with brushing linked low-dimensional views
and working up to manual manipulation of tours of
several variables. The role of graphical methods is
shown at each step of the analysis, not only in the
early exploratory phase, but in the later stages, too,
when comparing and evaluating models. All examples
are based on freely available software: GGobi for
interactive graphics and R for static graphics,
modeling, and programming. The printed book is
augmented by a wealth of material on the web,
encouraging readers follow the examples themselves.
The web site has all the data and code necessary to
reproduce the analyses in the book, along with movies
demonstrating the examples.

Iacus, S.M. Simulation and Inference for Stochastic Differential
Equations: With R Examples
2008   book  
Abstract: This book is very different from any other publication
in the field and it is unique because of its focus on
the practical implementation of the simulation and
estimation methods presented. The book should be
useful to practitioners and students with minimal
mathematical background, but because of the many R
programs, probably also to many mathematically well
educated practitioners. Many of the methods presented
in the book have, so far, not been used much in
practice because the lack of an implementation in a
unified framework. This book fills the gap. With the
R code included in this book, a lot of useful methods
become easy to use for practitioners and students. An
R package called `sde' provides functionswith easy
interfaces ready to be used on empirical data from
real life applications. Although it contains a wide
range of results, the book has an introductory
character and necessarily does not cover the whole
spectrum of simulation and inference for general
stochastic differential equations. The book is
organized in four chapters. The first one introduces
the subject and presents several classes of processes
used in many fields of mathematics, computational
biology, finance and the social sciences. The second
chapter is devoted to simulation schemes and covers
new methods not available in other milestones
publication known so far. The third one is focused on
parametric estimation techniques. In particular, it
includes exact likelihood inference, approximated and
pseudo-likelihood methods, estimating functions,
generalized method of moments and other techniques.
The last chapter contains miscellaneous topics like
nonparametric estimation, model identification and
change point estimation. The reader non-expert in R
language, will find a concise introduction to this
environment focused on the subject of the book which
should allow for instant use of the proposed material.
To each R functions presented in the book a
documentation page is available at the end of the
book.

Sarkar, D. Lattice: Multivariate Data Visualization with R 2008   book URL 
Abstract: R is rapidly growing in popularity as the environment
of choice for data analysis and graphics both in
academia and industry. Lattice brings the proven
design of Trellis graphics (originally developed for S
by William S. Cleveland and colleagues at Bell Labs)
to R, considerably expanding its capabilities in the
process. Lattice is a powerful and elegant high level
data visualization system that is sufficient for most
everyday graphics needs, yet flexible enough to be
easily extended to handle demands of cutting edge
research. Written by the author of the lattice
system, this book describes it in considerable depth,
beginning with the essentials and systematically
delving into specific low levels details as necessary.
No prior experience with lattice is required to read
the book, although basic familiarity with R is
assumed. The book contains close to 150 figures
produced with lattice. Many of the examples emphasize
principles of good graphical design; almost all use
real data sets that are publicly available in various
R packages. All code and figures in the book are also
available online, along with supplementary material
covering more advanced topics.

Keele, L. Semiparametric Regression for the Social Sciences 2008   book URL 
Abstract: Smoothing methods have been little used within the
social sciences. Semiparametric Regression for the
Social Sciences sets out to address this situation by
providing an accessible introduction to the subject,
filled with examples drawn from the social and
political sciences. Readers are introduced to the
principles of nonparametric smoothing and to a wide
variety of smoothing methods. The author also explains
how smoothing methods can be incorporated into
parametric linear and generalized linear models. The
use of smoothers with these standard statistical
models allows the estimation of more flexible
functional forms whilst retaining the interpretability
of parametric models. The full potential of these
techniques is highlighted via the use of detailed
empirical examples drawn from the social and political
sciences. Each chapter features exercises to aid in
the understanding of the methods and applications.
All examples in the book were estimated in R. The
book contains an appendix with R commands to introduce
readers to estimating these models in R. All the R
code for the examples in the book are available from
the author's website and the publishers website.

Claude, J. Morphometrics with R 2008   book  
Abstract: Quantifying shape and size variation is essential in
evolutionary biology and in many other disciplines.
Since the ``morphometric revolution of the 90s,'' an
increasing number of publications in applied and
theoretical morphometrics emerged in the new
discipline of statistical shape analysis. The R
language and environment offers a single platform to
perform a multitude of analyses from the acquisition
of data to the production of static and interactive
graphs. This offers an ideal environment to analyze
shape variation and shape change. This open-source
language is accessible for novices and for experienced
users. Adopting R gives the user and developer
several advantages for performing morphometrics:
evolvability, adaptability, interactivity, a single
and comprehensive platform, possibility of interfacing
with other languages and software, custom analyses,
and graphs. The book explains how to use R for
morphometrics and provides a series of examples of
codes and displays covering approaches ranging from
traditional morphometrics to modern statistical shape
analysis such as the analysis of landmark data, Thin
Plate Splines, and Fourier analysis of outlines. The
book fills two gaps: the gap between theoreticians and
students by providing worked examples from the
acquisition of data to analyses and hypothesis
testing, and the gap between user and developers by
providing and explaining codes for performing all the
steps necessary for morphometrics rather than
providing a manual for a given software or package.
Students and scientists interested in shape analysis
can use the book as a reference for performing applied
morphometrics, while prospective researchers will
learn how to implement algorithms or interfacing R for
new methods. In addition, adopting the R philosophy
will enhance exchanges within and outside the
morphometrics community. Julien Claude is
evolutionary biologist and palaeontologist at the
University of Montpellier 2 where he got his Ph.D. in
2003. He works on biodiversity and phenotypic
evolution of a variety of organisms, especially
vertebrates. He teaches evolutionary biology and
biostatistics to undergraduate and graduate students
and has developed several functions in R for the
package APE.

Pfaff, B. Analysis of Integrated and Cointegrated Time Series
with R, Second Edition
2008   book  
Abstract: The analysis of integrated and co-integrated time
series can be considered as the main methodology
employed in applied econometrics. This book not only
introduces the reader to this topic but enables him to
conduct the various unit root tests and co-integration
methods on his own by utilizing the free statistical
programming environment R. The book encompasses
seasonal unit roots, fractional integration, coping
with structural breaks, and multivariate time series
models. The book is enriched by numerous programming
examples to artificial and real data so that it is
ideally suited as an accompanying text book to
computer lab classes. The second edition adds a
discussion of vector auto-regressive, structural
vector auto-regressive, and structural vector
error-correction models. To analyze the interactions
between the investigated variables, further impulse
response function and forecast error variance
decompositions are introduced as well as forecasting.
The author explains how these model types relate to
each other. Bernhard Pfaff studied economics at the
universities of Göttingen, Germany; Davis,
California; and Freiburg im Breisgau, Germany. He
obtained a diploma and a doctorate degree at the
economics department of the latter entity where he was
employed as a research and teaching assistant. He has
worked for many years as economist and quantitative
analyst in research departments of financial
institutions and he is the author and maintainer of
the contributed R packages ``urca'' and ``vars.''

Spector, P. Data Manipulation with R 2008   book  
Abstract: Since its inception, R has become one of the
preeminent programs for statistical computing and data
analysis. The ready availability of the program,
along with a wide variety of packages and the
supportive R community make R an excellent choice for
almost any kind of computing task related to
statistics. However, many users, especially those
with experience in other languages, do not take
advantage of the full power of R. Because of the
nature of R, solutions that make sense in other
languages may not be very efficient in R. This book
presents a wide array of methods applicable for
reading data into R, and efficiently manipulating that
data. In addition to the built-in functions, a number
of readily available packages from CRAN (the
Comprehensive R Archive Network) are also covered.
All of the methods presented take advantage of the
core features of R: vectorization, efficient use of
subscripting, and the proper use of the varied
functions in R that are provided for common data
management tasks. Most experienced R users discover
that, especially when working with large data sets, it
may be helpful to use other programs, notably
databases, in conjunction with R. Accordingly, the
use of databases in R is covered in detail, along with
methods for extracting data from spreadsheets and
datasets created by other programs. Character
manipulation, while sometimes overlooked within R, is
also covered in detail, allowing problems that are
traditionally solved by scripting languages to be
carried out entirely within R. For users with
experience in other languages, guidelines for the
effective use of programming constructs like loops are
provided. Since many statistical modeling and
graphics functions need their data presented in a data
frame, techniques for converting the output of
commonly used functions to data frames are provided
throughout the book. Using a variety of examples
based on data sets included with R, along with easily
simulated data sets, the book is recommended to anyone
using R who wishes to advance from simple examples to
practical real-life data manipulation solutions.

Cryer, J.D. and Chan, K.-S. Time Series Analysis With Applications in R 2008   book  
Abstract: Time Series Analysis With Applications in R, Second
Edition, presents an accessible approach to
understanding time series models and their
applications. Although the emphasis is on time domain
ARIMA models and their analysis, the new edition
devotes two chapters to the frequency domain and three
to time series regression models, models for
heteroscedasticty, and threshold models. All of the
ideas and methods are illustrated with both real and
simulated data sets. A unique feature of this edition
is its integration with the R computing environment.
The tables and graphical displays are accompanied by
the R commands used to produce them. An extensive R
package, TSA, which contains many new or revised R
functions and all of the data used in the book,
accompanies the written text. Script files of R
commands for each chapter are available for download.
There is also an extensive appendix in the book that
leads the reader through the use of R commands and the
new R package to carry out the analyses.

Peng, R.D. and Dominici, F. Statistical Methods for Environmental Epidemiology
with R: A Case Study in Air Pollution and Health
2008   book  
Abstract: Advances in statistical methodology and computing have
played an important role in allowing researchers to
more accurately assess the health effects of ambient
air pollution. The methods and software developed in
this area are applicable to a wide array of problems
in environmental epidemiology. This book provides an
overview of the methods used for investigating the
health effects of air pollution and gives examples and
case studies in R which demonstrate the application of
those methods to real data. The book will be useful
to statisticians, epidemiologists, and graduate
students working in the area of air pollution and
health and others analyzing similar data. The authors
describe the different existing approaches to
statistical modeling and cover basic aspects of
analyzing and understanding air pollution and health
data. The case studies in each chapter demonstrate
how to use R to apply and interpret different
statistical models and to explore the effects of
potential confounding factors. A working knowledge of
R and regression modeling is assumed. In-depth
knowledge of R programming is not required to
understand and run the examples. Researchers in this
area will find the book useful as a ``live''
reference. Software for all of the analyses in the
book is downloadable from the web and is available
under a Free Software license. The reader is free to
run the examples in the book and modify the code to
suit their needs. In addition to providing the
software for developing the statistical models, the
authors provide the entire database from the National
Morbidity, Mortality, and Air Pollution Study (NMMAPS)
in a convenient R package. With the database, readers
can run the examples and experiment with their own
methods and ideas.

Bivand, R.S., Pebesma, E.J. and Gómez-Rubio, V. Applied Spatial Data Analysis with R 2008   book  
Abstract: Applied Spatial Data Analysis with R is divided into
two basic parts, the first presenting R packages,
functions, classes and methods for handling spatial
data. This part is of interest to users who need to
access and visualise spatial data. Data import and
export for many file formats for spatial data are
covered in detail, as is the interface between R and
the open source GRASS GIS. The second part showcases
more specialised kinds of spatial data analysis,
including spatial point pattern analysis,
interpolation and geostatistics, areal data analysis
and disease mapping. The coverage of methods of
spatial data analysis ranges from standard techniques
to new developments, and the examples used are largely
taken from the spatial statistics literature. All the
examples can be run using R contributed packages
available from the CRAN website, with code and
additional data sets from the book's own website.
This book will be of interest to researchers who
intend to use R to handle, visualise, and analyse
spatial data. It will also be of interest to spatial
data analysts who do not use R, but who are interested
in practical aspects of implementing software for
spatial data analysis. It is a suitable companion
book for introductory spatial statistics courses and
for applied methods courses in a wide range of
subjects using spatial data, including human and
physical geography, geographical information systems,
the environmental sciences, ecology, public health and
disease control, economics, public administration and
political science. The book has a website where
coloured figures, complete code examples, data sets,
and other support material may be found:

Nason, G.P. Wavelet Methods in Statistics with R 2008   book  
Abstract: Wavelet methods have recently undergone a rapid period
of development with important implications for a
number of disciplines including statistics. This book
fulfils three purposes. First, it is a gentle
introduction to wavelets and their uses in statistics.
Second, it acts as a quick and broad reference to many
recent developments in the area. The book
concentrates on describing the essential elements and
provides comprehensive source material references.
Third, the book intersperses R code that explains and
demonstrates both wavelet and statistical methods.
The code permits the user to learn the methods, to
carry out their own analyses and further develop their
own methods. The book is designed to be read in
conjunction with WaveThresh4, the freeware R package
for wavelets. The book introduces the wavelet
transform by starting with the simple Haar wavelet
transform and then builds to consider more general
wavelets such as the Daubechies compactly supported
series. The book then describes the evolution of
wavelets in the directions of complex-valued wavelets,
non-decimated transforms, multiple wavelets and
wavelet packets as well as giving consideration to
boundary conditions initialization. Later chapters
explain the role of wavelets in nonparametric
regression problems via a variety of techniques
including thresholding, cross-validation, SURE,
false-discovery rate and recent Bayesian methods, and
also consider how to deal with correlated and
non-Gaussian noise structures. The book also looks at
how nondecimated and packet transforms can improve
performance. The penultimate chapter considers the
role of wavelets in both stationary and non-stationary
time series analysis. The final chapter describes
recent work concerning the role of wavelets for
variance stabilization for non-Gaussian intensity
estimation. The book is aimed at final year
undergraduate and Masters students in a numerate
discipline (such as mathematics, statistics, physics,
economics and engineering) and would also suit as a
quick reference for postgraduate or research level
activity. The book would be ideal for a researcher to
learn about wavelets, to learn how to use wavelet
software and then to adapt the ideas for their own
purposes.

Kleiber, C. and Zeileis, A. Applied Econometrics with R 2008   book  
Abstract: This is the first book on applied econometrics using
the R system for statistical computing and graphics.
It presents hands-on examples for a wide range of
econometric models, from classical linear regression
models for cross-section, time series or panel data
and the common non-linear models of microeconometrics
such as logit, probit and tobit models, to recent
semiparametric extensions. In addition, it provides a
chapter on programming, including simulations,
optimization, and an introduction to R tools enabling
reproducible econometric research. An R package
accompanying this book, AER, is available from the
Comprehensive R Archive Network (CRAN) at
http://CRAN.R-project.org/package=AER. It
contains some 100 data sets taken from a wide variety
of sources, the full source code for all examples used
in the text plus further worked examples, e.g., from
popular textbooks. The data sets are suitable for
illustrating, among other things, the fitting of wage
equations, growth regressions, hedonic regressions,
dynamic regressions and time series models as well as
models of labor force participation or the demand for
health care. The goal of this book is to provide a
guide to R for users with a background in economics or
the social sciences. Readers are assumed to have a
background in basic statistics and econometrics at the
undergraduate level. A large number of examples should
make the book of interest to graduate students,
researchers and practitioners alike.

non-statistician will easily understand. This is a
book written in colloquial language, avoiding
mathematical formulae as much as possible, trying to
explain statistical methods using examples and
graphics instead. To use the book efficiently, readers
should have some computer experience. The book starts
with the simplest of statistical concepts and carries
readers forward to a deeper and more extensive
understanding of the use of statistics in
environmental sciences. The book concerns the
application of statistical and other computer methods
to the management, analysis and display of spatial
data. These data are characterised by including
locations (geographic coordinates), which leads to the
necessity of using maps to display the data and the
results of the statistical methods. Although the book
uses examples from applied geochemistry, and a large
geochemical survey in particular, the principles and
ideas equally well apply to other natural sciences,
e.g., environmental sciences, pedology, hydrology,
geography, forestry, ecology, and health
sciences/epidemiology. The book is unique because it
supplies direct access to software solutions (based on
R, the Open Source version of the S-language for
statistics) for applied environmental statistics. For
all graphics and tables presented in the book, the
R-scripts are provided in the form of executable
R-scripts. In addition, a graphical user interface
for R, called DAS+R, was developed for convenient,
fast and interactive data analysis. Statistical Data
Analysis Explained: Applied Environmental Statistics
with R provides, on an accompanying website, the
software to undertake all the procedures discussed,
and the data employed for their description in the
book.

Sheather, S. A Modern Approach to Regression with R 2008   book  
Abstract: A Modern Approach to Regression with R focuses on
tools and techniques for building regression models
using real-world data and assessing their
validity. When weaknesses in the model are identified,
the next step is to address each of these
weaknesses. A key theme throughout the book is that it
makes sense to base inferences or conclusions only on
valid models. The regression output and plots that
appear throughout the book have been generated using
R. On the book website you will find the R code used
in each example in the text. You will also find
SAS code and STATA code to produce the equivalent
output on the book website. Primers containing
expanded explanations of R, SAS and STATA and their
use in this book are also available on the book
website. The book contains a number of new real data
sets from applications ranging from rating
restaurants, rating wines, predicting newspaper
circulation and magazine revenue, comparing the
performance of NFL kickers, and comparing finalists in
the Miss America pageant across states. One of the
aspects of the book that sets it apart from many other
regression books is that complete details are provided
for each example. The book is aimed at first year
graduate students in statistics and could also be used
for a senior undergraduate class.

Ritz, C. and Streibig, J.C. Nonlinear Regression with R 2009   book  
Abstract: R is a rapidly evolving lingua franca of graphical
display and statistical analysis of experiments from
the applied sciences. Currently, R offers a wide
range of functionality for nonlinear regression
analysis, but the relevant functions, packages and
documentation are scattered across the R environment.
This book provides a coherent and unified treatment of
nonlinear regression with R by means of examples from
a diversity of applied sciences such as biology,
chemistry, engineering, medicine and toxicology. The
book starts out giving a basic introduction to fitting
nonlinear regression models in R. Subsequent chapters
explain the salient features of the main fitting
function nls(), the use of model diagnostics, how to
deal with various model departures, and carry out
hypothesis testing. In the final chapter grouped-data
structures, including an example of a nonlinear
mixed-effects regression model, are considered.

Zuur, A., Ieno, E.N., Walker, N., Saveiliev, A.A. and Smith, G.M. Mixed Effects Models and Extensions in Ecology with
R
2009   book  
Abstract: Building on the successful Analysing Ecological Data
(2007) by Zuur, Ieno and Smith, the authors now
provide an expanded introduction to using regression
and its extensions in analysing ecological data. As
with the earlier book, real data sets from
postgraduate ecological studies or research projects
are used throughout. The first part of the book is a
largely non-mathematical introduction to linear mixed
effects modelling, GLM and GAM, zero inflated models,
GEE, GLMM and GAMM. The second part provides ten case
studies that range from koalas to deep sea research.
These chapters provide an invaluable insight into
analysing complex ecological datasets, including
comparisons of different approaches to the same
problem. By matching ecological questions and data
structure to a case study, these chapters provide an
excellent starting point to analysing your own data.
Data and R code from all chapters are available from

Petris, G., Petrone, S. and Campagnoli, P. Dynamic Linear Models with R 2009   book  
Abstract: After a detailed introduction to general state space
models, this book focuses on dynamic linear models,
emphasizing their Bayesian analysis. Whenever
possible it is shown how to compute estimates and
forecasts in closed form; for more complex models,
simulation techniques are used. A final chapter
covers modern sequential Monte Carlo algorithms. The
book illustrates all the fundamental steps needed to
use dynamic linear models in practice, using R. Many
detailed examples based on real data sets are provided
to show how to set up a specific model, estimate its
parameters, and use it for forecasting. All the code
used in the book is available online. No prior
knowledge of Bayesian statistics or time series
analysis is required, although familiarity with basic
statistics and R is assumed.

Albert, J. Bayesian Computation with R 2009   book  
Abstract: Bayesian Computing Using R introduces Bayesian
modeling by the use of computation using the R
language. T he early chapters present the basic tenets
of Bayesian thinking by use of familiar one and
two-parameter inferential problems. Bayesian
computational methods such as Laplace's method,
rejection sampling, and the SIR algorithm are
illustrated in the context of a random effects model.
The construction and implementation of Markov Chain
Monte Carlo (MCMC) methods is introduced. These
simulation-based algorithms are implemented for a
variety of Bayesian applications such as normal and
binary response regression, hierarchical modeling,
order-restricted inference, and robust modeling.
Algorithms written in R are used to develop Bayesian
tests and assess Bayesian models by use of the
posterior predictive distribution. The use of R to
interface with WinBUGS, a popular MCMC computing
language, is described with several illustrative
examples. The second edition contains several new
topics such as the use of mixtures of conjugate priors
and the use of Zellner's g priors to choose between
models in linear regression. There are more
illustrations of the construction of informative prior
distributions, such as the use of conditional means
priors and multivariate normal priors in binary
regressions. The new edition contains changes in the
R code illustrations according to the latest edition
of the LearnBayes package.

Cowpertwait, P.S.P. and Metcalfe, A. Introductory Time Series with R 2009   book  
Abstract: This book gives you a step-by-step introduction to
analysing time series using the open source software
R. Once the model has been introduced it is used to
generate synthetic data, using R code, and these
generated data are then used to estimate its
parameters. This sequence confirms understanding of
both the model and the R routine for fitting it to the
data. Finally, the model is applied to an analysis of
a historical data set. By using R, the whole
procedure can be reproduced by the reader. All the
data sets used in the book are available on the
website http://www.massey.ac.nz/~pscowper/ts.
The book is written for undergraduate students of
mathematics, economics, business and finance,
geography, engineering and related disciplines, and
postgraduate students who may need to analyze time
series as part of their taught program or their
research.

2009   book URL 
Abstract: Using formal descriptions, graphical illustrations,
practical examples, and R software tools, Introduction
to Multivariate Statistical Analysis in Chemometrics
presents simple yet thorough explanations of the most
important multivariate statistical methods for
analyzing chemical data. It includes discussions of
various statistical methods, such as principal
component analysis, regression analysis,
classification methods, and clustering. Written by a
chemometrician and a statistician, the book reflects
both the practical approach of chemometrics and the
more formally oriented one of statistics. To enable a
better understanding of the statistical methods, the
authors apply them to real data examples from
chemistry. They also examine results of the different
methods, comparing traditional approaches with their
robust counterparts. In addition, the authors use the
freely available R package to implement methods,
encouraging readers to go through the examples and
adapt the procedures to their own problems. Focusing
on the practicality of the methods and the validity of
the results, this book offers concise mathematical
descriptions of many multivariate methods and employs
graphical schemes to visualize key concepts. It
effectively imparts a basic understanding of how to
apply statistical methods to multivariate scientific
data.

Millot, G. Comprendre et réaliser les tests statistiques
à l'aide de R
2009 , pp. 704  book URL 
Abstract: Ce livre s'adresse aux étudiants, médecins et
chercheurs désirant réaliser des tests alors
qu'ils débutent en statistique. Son
originalité est de proposer non seulement une
explication très détaillée sur
l'utilisation des tests les plus classiques, mais
aussi la possibilité de réaliser ces tests
à l'aide de R. Illustré par de nombreuses
figures et accompagné d'exercices avec correction,
l'ouvrage traite en profondeur de notions essentielles
comme la check-list à effectuer avant de
réaliser un test, la gestion des individus
extrêmes, l'origine de la p value, la puissance ou
la conclusion d'un test. Il explique comment choisir
un test à partir de ses propres données. Il
décrit 35 tests statistiques sous forme de fiches,
dont 24 non paramétriques, ce qui couvre la
plupart des tests à une ou deux variables
observées. Il traite de toutes les subtilités
des tests, comme les corrections de continuité,
les corrections de Welch pour le test t et l'anova, ou
les corrections de p value lors des comparaisons
multiples. Il propose un exemple d'application de
chaque test à l'aide de R, en incluant toutes les
étapes du test, et notamment l'analyse graphique
des données. En résumé, cet ouvrage
devrait contenter à la fois ceux qui recherchent
un manuel de statistique expliquant le fonctionnement
des tests et ceux qui recherchent un manuel
d'utilisation de R.

Steyerberg, E.W. Clinical Prediction Models: A Practical Approach to
Development, Validation, and Updating
2009   book  
Abstract: This book provides insight and practical illustrations
on how modern statistical concepts and regression
methods can be applied in medical prediction problems,
including diagnostic and prognostic outcomes. Many
advances have been made in statistical approaches
towards outcome prediction, but these innovations are
insufficiently applied in medical research.
Old-fashioned, data hungry methods are often used in
data sets of limited size, validation of predictions
is not done or done simplistically, and updating of
previously developed models is not considered. A
sensible strategy is needed for model development,
validation, and updating, such that prediction models
can better support medical practice. Clinical
prediction models presents a practical checklist with
seven steps that need to be considered for development
of a valid prediction model. These include preliminary
considerations such as dealing with missing values;
coding of predictors; selection of main effects and
interactions for a multivariable model; estimation of
model parameters with shrinkage methods and
incorporation of external data; evaluation of
performance and usefulness; internal validation; and
presentation formats. The steps are illustrated with
many small case-studies and R code, with data sets
made available in the public domain. The book further
focuses on generalizability of prediction models,
including patterns of invalidity that may be
encountered in new settings, approaches to updating of
a model, and comparisons of centers after case-mix
adjustment by a prediction model. The text is
primarily intended for clinical epidemiologists and
biostatisticians. It can be used as a textbook for a
graduate course on predictive modeling in diagnosis
and prognosis. It is beneficial if readers are
familiar with common statistical models in medicine:
linear regression, logistic regression, and Cox
regression. The book is practical in nature. But it
provides a philosophical perspective on data analysis
in medicine that goes beyond predictive modeling. In
this era of evidence-based medicine, randomized
clinical trials are the basis for assessment of
treatment efficacy. Prediction models are key to
individualizing diagnostic and treatment decision
making.

Using R
2009   book  
Abstract: This book teaches the skills needed to perform
scientific programming while also introducing
stochastic modelling. Stochastic modelling in
particular, and mathematical modelling in general, are
intimately linked to scientific programming because
the numerical techniques of scientific programming
enable the practical application of mathematical
models to real-world problems.

researchers with practical examples from social
sciences. The following twelve chapters written by
distinguished authors cover a wide range of
issues--all providing practical tools using the free R
software. McCullough: R can be used for reliable
statistical computing, whereas most statistical and
econometric software cannot. This is illustrated by
the effect of abortion on crime. Koenker: Additive
models provide a clever compromise between parametric
and non-parametric components illustrated by risk
factors for Indian malnutrition. Gelman: R graphics
in the context of voter participation in US elections.
Vinod: New solutions to the old problem of efficient
estimation despite autocorrelation and
heteroscedasticity among regression errors are
proposed and illustrated by the Phillips curve
tradeoff between inflation and unemployment. Markus
and Gu: New R tools for exploratory data analysis
including bubble plots. Vinod, Hsu and Tian: New R
tools for portfolio selection borrowed from computer
scientists and data-mining experts, relevant to anyone
with an investment portfolio. Foster and Kecojevic:
Extends the usual analysis of covariance (ANCOVA)
illustrated by growth charts for Saudi children.
Imai, Keele, Tingley, and Yamamoto: New R tools for
solving the age-old scientific problem of assessing
the direction and strength of causation. Their job
search illustration is of interest during current
times of high unemployment. Haupt, Schnurbus, and
Tschernig: consider the choice of functional form for
an unknown, potentially nonlinear relationship,
explaining a set of new R tools for model
visualization and validation. Rindskopf: R methods to
fit a multinomial based multivariate analysis of
variance (ANOVA) with examples from psychology,
sociology, political science, and medicine. Neath: R
tools for Bayesian posterior distributions to study
increased disease risk in proximity to a hazardous
waste site. Numatsi and Rengifo: explain persistent
discrete jumps in financial series subject to
misspecification.

Robert, C. and Casella, G. Introducing Monte Carlo Methods with R 2010   book  
Abstract: Computational techniques based on simulation have now
become an essential part of the statistician's
toolbox. It is thus crucial to provide statisticians
with a practical understanding of those methods, and
there is no better way to develop intuition and skills
for simulation than to use simulation to solve
statistical problems. Introducing Monte Carlo Methods
with R covers the main tools used in statistical
simulation from a programmer's point of view,
explaining the R implementation of each simulation
technique and providing the output for better
understanding and comparison. While this book
constitutes a comprehensive treatment of simulation
methods, the theoretical justification of those
methods has been considerably reduced, compared with
Robert and Casella (2004). Similarly, the more
exploratory and less stable solutions are not covered
here. This book does not require a preliminary
exposure to the R programming language or to Monte
Carlo methods, nor an advanced mathematical
background. While many examples are set within a
Bayesian framework, advanced expertise in Bayesian
statistics is not required. The book covers basic
random generation algorithms, Monte Carlo techniques
for integration and optimization, convergence
diagnoses, Markov chain Monte Carlo methods, including
Metropolis-Hastings and Gibbs algorithms, and adaptive
algorithms. All chapters include exercises and all R
programs are available as an R package called
mcsm. The book appeals to anyone with a practical
interest in simulation methods but no previous
exposure. It is meant to be useful for students and
practitioners in areas such as statistics, signal
processing, communications engineering, control
theory, econometrics, finance and more. The
programming parts are introduced progressively to be
accessible to any reader.

Gaetan, C. and Guyon, X. Spatial Statistics and Modeling 2010   book  
Abstract: Spatial statistics are useful in subjects as diverse
as climatology, ecology, economics, environmental and
earth sciences, epidemiology, image analysis and
more. This book covers the best-known spatial models
for three types of spatial data: geostatistical data
(stationarity, intrinsic models, variograms, spatial
regression and space-time models), areal data
(Gibbs-Markov fields and spatial auto-regression) and
point pattern data (Poisson, Cox, Gibbs and Markov
point processes). The level is relatively advanced,
and the presentation concise but complete. The most
important statistical methods and their asymptotic
properties are described, including estimation in
geostatistics, autocorrelation and second-order
statistics, maximum likelihood methods, approximate
inference using the pseudo-likelihood or Monte-Carlo
simulations, statistics for point processes and
Bayesian hierarchical models. A chapter is devoted to
Markov Chain Monte Carlo simulation (Gibbs sampler,
Metropolis-Hastings algorithms and exact simulation).
A large number of real examples are studied with R,
and each chapter ends with a set of theoretical and
applied exercises. While a foundation in probability
and mathematical statistics is assumed, three
appendices introduce some necessary background. The
book is accessible to senior undergraduate students
with a solid math background and Ph.D. students in
statistics. Furthermore, experienced statisticians and
researchers in the above-mentioned fields will find
the book valuable as a mathematically sound
reference. This book is the English translation of
Modélisation et Statistique Spatiales published by
Springer in the series Mathématiques & Applications, a
series established by Société de Mathématiques
Appliquées et Industrielles (SMAI).

Ruppert, D. Statistics and Data Analysis for Financial
Engineering
2010   book  
Abstract: Financial engineers have access to enormous quantities
of data but need powerful methods for extracting
quantitative information, particularly about
volatility and risks. Key features of this textbook
are: illustration of concepts with financial markets
and economic data, R Labs with real-data exercises,
and integration of graphical and analytic methods for
modeling and diagnosing modeling errors. Despite some
overlap with the author's undergraduate textbook
Statistics and Finance: An Introduction, this book
differs from that earlier volume in several important
aspects: it is graduate-level; computations and
graphics are done in R; and many advanced topics are
covered, for example, multivariate distributions,
copulas, Bayesian computations, VaR and expected
shortfall, and cointegration. The prerequisites are
basic statistics and probability, matrices and linear
algebra, and calculus. Some exposure to finance is
helpful.

Robinson, A.P. and Hamann, J.D. Forest Analytics with R 2010   book  
Abstract: Forest Analytics with R combines practical,
down-to-earth forestry data analysis and solutions to
real forest management challenges with
state-of-the-art statistical and data-handling
functionality. The authors adopt a problem-driven
approach, in which statistical and mathematical tools
are introduced in the context of the forestry problem
that they can help to resolve. All the tools are
introduced in the context of real forestry datasets,
which provide compelling examples of practical
applications. The modeling challenges covered within
the book include imputation and interpolation for
spatial data, fitting probability density functions to
tree measurement data using maximum likelihood,
fitting allometric functions using both linear and
non-linear least-squares regression, and fitting
growth models using both linear and non-linear
mixed-effects modeling. The coverage also includes
deploying and using forest growth models written in
compiled languages, analysis of natural resources and
forestry inventory data, and forest estate planning
and optimization using linear programming. The book
would be ideal for a one-semester class in forest
biometrics or applied statistics for natural resources
management. The text assumes no programming
background, some introductory statistics, and very
basic applied mathematics.

Vasishth, S. and Broe, M. The Foundations of Statistics: A Simulation-based
Approach
2010   book  
Abstract: Statistics and hypothesis testing are routinely used
in areas (such as linguistics) that are
traditionally not mathematically intensive. In such
fields, when faced with experimental data, many
students and researchers tend to rely on commercial
packages to carry out statistical data analysis,
often without understanding the logic of the
statistical tests they rely on. As a consequence,
results are often misinterpreted, and users have
difficulty in flexibly applying techniques relevant
to their own research --- they use whatever they
happen to have learned. A simple solution is to
teach the fundamental ideas of statistical
hypothesis testing without using too much
mathematics. This book provides a non-mathematical,
simulation-based introduction to basic statistical
concepts and encourages readers to try out the
simulations themselves using the source code and
data provided (the freely available programming
language R is used throughout). Since the code
presented in the text almost always requires the use
of previously introduced programming constructs,
diligent students also acquire basic programming
abilities in R. The book is intended for advanced
undergraduate and graduate students in any
discipline, although the focus is on linguistics,
psychology, and cognitive science. It is designed
for self-instruction, but it can also be used as a
textbook for a first course on statistics. Earlier
versions of the book have been used in undergraduate
and graduate courses in Europe and the US.

Abstract: Ce livre est focalisé sur les quatre méthodes
fondamentales de l'analyse des données, celles qui
ont le plus vaste potentiel d'application : analyse en
composantes principales, analyse factorielle des
correspondances, analyse des correspondances multiples
et classification ascendante hiérarchique. La plus
grande place accordée aux méthodes factorielles
tient d'une part aux concepts plus nombreux et plus
complexes nécessaires à leur bonne utilisation et
d'autre part au fait que c'est à travers elles que
sont abordées les spécificités des différents
types de données. Pour chaque méthode, la
démarche adoptée est la même. Un exemple permet
d'introduire la problématique et concrétise
presque pas à pas les éléments théoriques. Cet
exposé est suivi de plusieurs exemples traités de
facon détaillée pour illustrer l'apport de la
méthode dans les applications. Tout le long du
texte, chaque résultat est accompagné de la
commande R qui permet de l'obtenir. Toutes ces
commandes sont accessibles à partir de FactoMineR,
package R développé par les auteurs. Ainsi, avec
cet ouvrage, le lecteur dispose d'un équipement
complet (bases théoriques, exemples, logiciels) pour
analyser des données multidimensionnelles.

Bloomfield, V. Computer Simulation and Data Analysis in Molecular
Biology and Biophysics: An Introduction Using R
2009   book URL 
Abstract: This book provides an introduction, suitable for
advanced undergraduates and beginning graduate
students, to two important aspects of molecular
biology and biophysics: computer simulation and data
analysis. It introduces tools to enable readers to
learn and use fundamental methods for constructing
quantitative models of biological mechanisms, both
deterministic and with some elements of randomness,
including complex reaction equilibria and kinetics,
population models, and regulation of metabolism and
development; to understand how concepts of probability
can help in explaining important features of DNA
sequences; and to apply a useful set of statistical
methods to analysis of experimental data from
spectroscopic, genomic, and proteomic sources. These
quantitative tools are implemented using the free,
open source software program R. R provides an
excellent environment for general numerical and
statistical computing and graphics, with capabilities
similar to Matlab. Since R is increasingly used in
bioinformatics applications such as the BioConductor
project, it can serve students as their basic
quantitative, statistical, and graphics tool as they
develop their careers

Husson, F., Lê, S. and Pagès, J. Exploratory Multivariate Analysis by Example Using
R
2010   book URL 
Abstract: Full of real-world case studies and practical advice,
Exploratory Multivariate Analysis by Example Using R
focuses on four fundamental methods of multivariate
exploratory data analysis that are most suitable for
applications. It covers principal component analysis
(PCA) when variables are quantitative, correspondence
analysis (CA) and multiple correspondence analysis
(MCA) when variables are categorical, and hierarchical
cluster analysis. The authors take a geometric point
of view that provides a unified vision for exploring
multivariate data tables. Within this framework, they
present the principles, indicators, and ways of
representing and visualizing objects that are common
to the exploratory methods. The authors show how to
use categorical variables in a PCA context in which
variables are quantitative, how to handle more than
two categorical variables in a CA context in which
there are originally two variables, and how to add
quantitative variables in an MCA context in which
variables are categorical. They also illustrate the
methods and the ways they can be exploited using
examples from various fields. Throughout the text,
each result correlates with an R command accessible in
the FactoMineR package developed by the authors. All
of the data sets and code are available at
http://factominer.free.fr/book. By using the
theory, examples, and software presented in this book,
readers will be fully equipped to tackle real-life
multivariate data.

Chen, D. Clinical Trial Data Analysis with R 2010   book URL 
Abstract: Too often in biostatistical research and clinical
trials, a knowledge gap exists between developed
statistical methods and the applications of these
methods. Filling this gap, Clinical Trial Data
Analysis Using R provides a thorough presentation of
biostatistical analyses of clinical trial data and
shows step by step how to implement the statistical
methods using R. The book's practical, detailed
approach draws on the authors' 30 years of real-world
experience in biostatistical research and clinical
development. Each chapter presents examples of
clinical trials based on the authors' actual
experiences in clinical drug development. Various
biostatistical methods for analyzing the data are then
identified. The authors develop analysis code step by
step using appropriate R packages and functions. This
approach enables readers to gain an understanding of
the analysis methods and R implementation so that they
can use R to analyze their own clinical trial
data. With step-by-step illustrations of R
implementations, this book shows how to easily use R
to simulate and analyze data from a clinical trial. It
describes numerous up-to-date statistical methods and
offers sound guidance on the processes involved in
clinical trials.

Cornillon, P.A. and Matzner-Lober, E. Régression avec R 2011 , pp. 242  book  
Abstract: Cet ouvrage expose en détail l'une des
méthodes statistiques les plus courantes : la
régression. Il concilie théorie et
applications, en insistant notamment sur l'analyse de
données réelles avec le logiciel R. Les
premiers chapitres sont consacrés à la
régression linéaire simple et multiple, et
expliquent les fondements de la méthode, tant au
niveau des choix opérés que des hypothèses
et de leur utilité. Puis ils développent les
outils permettant de vérifier les hypothèses
de base mises en œuvre par la régression, et
présentent les modèles d'analyse de la
variance et covariance. Suit l'analyse du choix de
modèle en régression multiple. Les derniers
chapitres présentent certaines extensions de la
régression, comme la régression sous
contraintes (ridge, lasso et lars), la régression
sur composantes (PCR et PLS), et, enfin, introduisent
à la régression non paramétrique (spline
et noyau). La présentation témoigne d'un
réel souci pédagogique des auteurs qui
bénéficient d'une expérience
d'enseignement auprès de publics très
variés. Les résultats exposés sont
replacés dans la perspective de leur utilité
pratique grâce à l'analyse d'exemples
concrets. Les commandes permettant le traitement des
exemples sous le logiciel R figurent dans le corps du
texte. Chaque chapitre est complété par une
suite d'exercices corrigés. Le niveau

Robert, C.P. and Casella, G. Méthodes de Monte-Carlo avec R 2011 , pp. 256  book  
Abstract: Les techniques informatiques de simulation sont
essentielles au statisticien. Afin que celui-ci puisse
les utiliser en vue de résoudre des problèmes
statistiques, il lui faut au préalable
développer son intuition et sa capacité à
produire lui-même des modèles de
simulation. Ce livre adopte donc le point de vue du
programmeur pour exposer ces outils fondamentaux de
simulation stochastique. Il montre comment les
implémenter sous R et donne les clés d'une
meilleure compréhension des méthodes
exposées en vue de leur comparaison, sans
s'attarder trop longuement sur leur justification
théorique. Les auteurs présentent les
algorithmes de base pour la génération de
données aléatoires, les techniques de
Monte-Carlo pour l'intégration et l'optimisation,
les diagnostics de convergence, les chaînes de
Markov, les algorithmes adaptatifs, les algorithmes de
Metropolis- Hastings et de Gibbs. Tous les chapitres
incluent des exercices. Les programmes R sont
disponibles dans un package spécifique. Le livre
s'adresse à toute personne que la simulation
statistique intéresse et n'exige aucune
connaissance préalable du langage R, ni aucune
expertise en statistique bayésienne, bien que
nombre d'exercices relèvent de ce champ
précis. Cet ouvrage sera utile aux étudiants
et aux professionnels actifs dans les domaines de la
statistique, des télécommunications, de
l'économétrie, de la finance et bien d'autres
encore.

Aragon, Y. Séries temporelles avec R. Méthodes et cas 2011 , pp. 265  book  
Abstract: Ce livre étudie sous un angle original le concept
de série temporelle, dont la complexité
théorique et l'utilisation sont souvent sources de
difficultés. La théorie distingue par exemple
les notions de séries stationnaire et non
stationnaire, mais il n'est pas rare de pouvoir
modéliser une série par deux modèles
incompatibles. De plus, un peu d'intimité avec les
séries montre qu'on peut s'appuyer sur des
graphiques variés pour en comprendre assez
rapidement la structure, avant toute
modélisation. Ainsi, au lieu d'étudier des
méthodes de modélisation, puis de les
illustrer, l'auteur prend ici le parti de
s'intéresser à un nombre limité de
séries afin de trouver ce qu'on peut dire de
chacune. Avant d'aborder ces études de cas, il
procéde à quelques rappels et commence par
présenter les graphiques pour séries
temporelles offerts par R. Il revient ensuite sur des
notions fondamentales de statistique mathématique,
puis révise les concepts et les modèles
classiques de séries. Il présente les
structures de séries temporelles dans R et leur
importation. Il revisite le lissage exponentiel à
la lumière des travaux les plus récents. Un
chapitre est consacré à la simulation. Six
séries sont ensuite étudiées par le menu
en confrontant plusieurs approches.

Gilli, M., Maringer, D. and Schumann, E. Numerical Methods and Optimization in Finance 2011   book URL 
Abstract: The book explains tools for computational finance. It
covers fundamental numerical analysis and
computational techniques, for example for option
pricing, but two topics are given special attention:
simulation and optimization. Many chapters are
organized as case studies, dealing with problems like
portfolio insurance or risk estimation; in particular,
several chapters explain optimization heuristics and
how to use them for portfolio selection or the
calibration of option pricing models. Such practical
examples allow readers to learn the required steps for
solving specific problems, and to apply these steps to
other problems, too. At the same time, the chosen
applications are relevant enough to make the book a
useful reference on how to handle given
problems. Matlab and R sample code is provided in the
text and can be downloaded from the book's website; an
R package `NMOF' is also available.

Chihara, L. and Hesterberg, T. Mathematical Statistics with Resampling and R 2011 , pp. 440  book URL 
Abstract: Resampling helps students understand the meaning of
sampling distributions, sampling variability,
P-values, hypothesis tests, and confidence intervals.
This book shows how to apply modern resampling
techniques to mathematical statistics. Extensively
class-tested to ensure an accessible presentation,
Mathematical Statistics with Resampling and R utilizes
the powerful and flexible computer language R to
underscore the significance and benefits of modern
resampling techniques. The book begins by introducing
permutation tests and bootstrap methods, motivating
classical inference methods. Striking a balance
between theory, computing, and applications, the
authors explore additional topics such as: Exploratory
data analysis, Calculation of sampling distributions,
The Central Limit Theorem, Monte Carlo sampling,
Maximum likelihood estimation and properties of
estimators, Confidence intervals and hypothesis tests,
Regression, Bayesian methods. Case studies on diverse
subjects such as flight delays, birth weights of
babies, and telephone company repair times illustrate
the relevance of the material. Mathematical
Statistics with Resampling and R is an excellent book
for courses on mathematical statistics at the
upper-undergraduate and graduate levels. It also
serves as a valuable reference for applied
statisticians working in the areas of business,
economics, biostatistics, and public health who
utilize resampling methods in their everyday work.

Williams, G. Data Mining with Rattle and R: The art of
excavating data for knowledge discovery
2011   book URL 
Abstract: Data mining is the art and science of intelligent data
analysis. By building knowledge from information,
data mining adds considerable value to the ever
increasing stores of electronic data that abound
today. In performing data mining many decisions need
to be made regarding the choice of methodology, the
choice of data, the choice of tools, and the choice of
algorithms. Throughout this book the reader is
introduced to the basic concepts and some of the more
popular algorithms of data mining. With a focus on
the hands-on end-to-end process for data mining,
Williams guides the reader through various
capabilities of the easy to use, free, and open source
Rattle Data Mining Software built on the sophisticated
R Statistical Software. The focus on doing data
mining rather than just reading about data mining is
refreshing. The book covers data understanding, data
preparation, data refinement, model building, model
evaluation, and practical deployment. The reader will
learn to rapidly deliver a data mining project using
software easily installed for free from the Internet.
Coupling Rattle with R delivers a very sophisticated
data mining environment with all the power, and more,
of the many commercial offerings.

Berridge, D.M. Multivariate Generalized Linear Mixed Models Using R 2011   book URL 
Abstract: Multivariate Generalized Linear Mixed Models Using R
presents robust and methodologically sound models for
analyzing large and complex data sets, enabling
readers to answer increasingly complex research
questions. The book applies the principles of modeling
to longitudinal data from panel and related studies
via the Sabre software package in R. The authors first
discuss members of the family of generalized linear
models, gradually adding complexity to the modeling
framework by incorporating random effects. After
reviewing the generalized linear model notation, they
illustrate a range of random effects models, including
three-level, multivariate, endpoint, event history,
and state dependence models. They estimate the
multivariate generalized linear mixed models (MGLMMs)
using either standard or adaptive Gaussian
quadrature. The authors also compare two-level fixed
and random effects linear models. The appendices
contain additional information on quadrature, model
estimation, and endogenous variables, along with
SabreR commands and examples. In medical and social
science research, MGLMMs help disentangle state
dependence from incidental parameters. Focusing on
these sophisticated data analysis techniques, this
book explains the statistical theory and modeling
involved in longitudinal studies. Many examples
throughout the text illustrate the analysis of
real-world data sets. Exercises, solutions, and other
material are available on a supporting website.

bestselling R Graphics comes complete with new
packages and new examples. Paul Murrell, widely known
as the leading expert on R graphics, has developed an
in-depth resource that helps both neophyte and
seasoned users master the intricacies of R
graphics. Organized into five parts, R Graphics covers
both ``traditional'' and newer, R-specific graphics
systems. The book reviews the graphics facilities of
the R language and describes R's powerful grid
graphics system. It then covers the graphics engine,
which represents a common set of fundamental graphics
facilities, and provides a series of brief overviews
of the major areas of application for R graphics and
the major extensions of R graphics.

Falissard, B. Analysis of Questionnaire Data with R 2011   book URL 
Abstract: While theoretical statistics relies primarily on
mathematics and hypothetical situations, statistical
practice is a translation of a question formulated by
a researcher into a series of variables linked by a
statistical tool. As with written material, there are
almost always differences between the meaning of the
original text and translated text. Additionally, many
versions can be suggested, each with their advantages
and disadvantages. Analysis of Questionnaire Data with
R translates certain classic research questions into
statistical formulations. As indicated in the title,
the syntax of these statistical formulations is based
on the well-known R language, chosen for its
popularity, simplicity, and power of its
structure. Although syntax is vital, understanding the
semantics is the real challenge of any good
translation. In this book, the semantics of
theoretical-to-practical translation emerges
progressively from examples and experience, and
occasionally from mathematical
considerations. Sometimes the interpretation of a
result is not clear, and there is no statistical tool
really suited to the question at hand. Sometimes data
sets contain errors, inconsistencies between answers,
or missing data. More often, available statistical
tools are not formally appropriate for the given
situation, making it difficult to assess to what
extent this slight inadequacy affects the
interpretation of results. Analysis of Questionnaire
Data with R tackles these and other common challenges
in the practice of statistics.

Ekstrom, C.T. The R Primer 2011   book URL 
Abstract: Newcomers to R are often intimidated by the
command-line interface, the vast number of functions
and packages, or the processes of importing data and
performing a simple statistical analysis. The R Primer
provides a collection of concise examples and
solutions to R problems frequently encountered by new
users of this statistical software. Rather than
explore the many options available for every command
as well as the ever-increasing number of packages, the
book focuses on the basics of data preparation and
analysis and gives examples that can be used as a
starting point. The numerous examples illustrate a
specific situation, topic, or problem, including data
importing, data management, classical statistical
analyses, and high-quality graphics production. Each
example is self-contained and includes R code that can
be run exactly as shown, enabling results from the
book to be replicated. While base R is used
throughout, other functions or packages are listed if
they cover or extend the functionality. After working
through the examples found in this text, new users of
R will be able to better handle data analysis and
graphics applications in R. Additional topics and R
code are available from the book's supporting website
at www.statistics.life.ku.dk/primer.

the book begins with a self-contained introduction to
R that lays the foundation for later chapters. This
book includes extensive and carefully explained
examples of how to write programs using the R
programming language. These examples cover methods
used for linear regression and designed experiments
with up to two fixed-effects factors, including
blocking variables and covariates. It also
demonstrates applications of several pre-packaged
functions for complex computational procedures.

Eubank, R.L. Statistical Computing with C++ and R 2011   book URL 
Abstract: With the advancement of statistical methodology
inextricably linked to the use of computers, new
methodological ideas must be translated into usable
code and then numerically evaluated relative to
competing procedures. In response to this, Statistical
Computing in C++ and R concentrates on the writing of
code rather than the development and study of
numerical algorithms per se. The book discusses code
development in C++ and R and the use of these
symbiotic languages in unison. It emphasizes that each
offers distinct features that, when used in tandem,
can take code writing beyond what can be obtained from
either language alone. The text begins with some
basics of object-oriented languages, followed by a
``boot-camp'' on the use of C++ and R. The authors
then discuss code development for the solution of
specific computational problems that are relevant to
statistics including optimization, numerical linear
algebra, and random number generation. Later chapters
introduce abstract data structures (ADTs) and parallel
computing concepts. The appendices cover R and UNIX
Shell programming. The translation of a mathematical
problem into its computational analog (or analogs) is
a skill that must be learned, like any other, by
actively solving relevant problems. The text reveals
the basic principles of algorithmic thinking essential
to the modern statistician as well as the fundamental
skill of communicating with a computer through the use
of the computer languages C++ and R. The book lays the
foundation for original code development in a research
environment.

Rizopoulos, D. Joint Models for Longitudinal and Time-to-Event Data,
with Applications in R
2012   book URL 
Abstract: The last 20 years have seen an increasing interest in
the class of joint models for longitudinal and
time-to-event data. These models constitute an
attractive paradigm for the analysis of follow-up data
that is mainly applicable in two settings: First, when
focus is on a survival outcome and we wish to account
for the effect of an endogenous time-dependent
covariate measured with error, and second, when focus
is on the longitudinal outcome and we wish to correct
for nonrandom dropout. Aimed at applied researchers
and graduate students, this text provides a
comprehensive overview of the framework of random
effects joint models. Emphasis is given on
applications such that readers will obtain a clear
view on the type of research questions that are best
answered using a joint modeling approach, the basic
features of these models, and how they can be extended
in practice. Special mention is given in checking the
assumptions using residual plots, and on dynamic
predictions for the survival and longitudinal
outcomes.

Cornillon, P.-A. R for Statistics 2012   book URL 
Abstract: Although there are currently a wide variety of
software packages suitable for the modern
statistician, R has the triple advantage of being
comprehensive, widespread, and free. Published in
2008, the second edition of Statistiques avec R
enjoyed great success as an R guidebook in the
French-speaking world. Translated and updated, R for
Statistics includes a number of expanded and
additional worked examples. Organized into two
sections, the book focuses first on the R software,
then on the implementation of traditional statistical
methods with R. After a short presentation of the
method, the book explicitly details the R command
lines and gives commented results. Accessible to
novices and experts alike, R for Statistics is a clear
and enjoyable resource for any scientist.

van Buuren, S. Flexible Imputation of Missing Data 2012   book URL 
Abstract: Missing data form a problem in every scientific
discipline, yet the techniques required to handle them
are complicated and often lacking. One of the great
ideas in statistical science---multiple
imputation---fills gaps in the data with plausible
values, the uncertainty of which is coded in the data
itself. It also solves other problems, many of which
are missing data problems in disguise. Flexible
Imputation of Missing Data is supported by many
examples using real data taken from the author's vast
experience of collaborative research, and presents a
practical guide for handling missing data under the
framework of multiple imputation. Furthermore,
detailed guidance of implementation in R using the
author's package MICE is included throughout the
book. This graduate-tested book avoids mathematical
and technical details as much as possible: formulas
are accompanied by a verbal statement that explains
the formula in layperson terms. Readers less concerned
with the theoretical underpinnings will be able to
pick up the general idea, and technical material is
available for those who desire deeper
understanding. The analyses can be replicated in R
using a dedicated package developed by the author.

introduces each of the major R packages for GUI
programming: RGtk2, qtbase, Tcl/Tk, and gWidgets. With
examples woven through the text as well as stand-alone
demonstrations of simple yet reasonably complete
applications, the book features topics especially
relevant to statisticians who aim to provide a
practical interface to functionality implemented in
R. The accompanying package, ProgGUIinR, includes the
complete code for all examples as well as functions
for browsing the examples from the respective
chapters. Accessible to seasoned, novice, and
occasional R users, this book shows that for many
purposes, adding a graphical interface to one's work
is not terribly sophisticated or time consuming.

Lunn, D. The BUGS Book: A Practical Introduction to
Bayesian Analysis
2012   book URL 
Abstract: Bayesian statistical methods have become widely used
for data analysis and modelling in recent years, and
the BUGS software has become the most popular software
for Bayesian analysis worldwide. Authored by the team
that originally developed this software, The BUGS Book
provides a practical introduction to this program and
its use. The text presents complete coverage of all
the functionalities of BUGS, including prediction,
missing data, model criticism, and prior
sensitivity. It also features a large number of worked
examples and a wide range of applications from various
disciplines. The book introduces regression models,
techniques for criticism and comparison, and a wide
range of modelling issues before going into the vital
area of hierarchical models, one of the most common
applications of Bayesian methods. It deals with
essentials of modelling without getting bogged down in
complexity. The book emphasises model criticism, model
comparison, sensitivity analysis to alternative
priors, and thoughtful choice of prior
distributions---all those aspects of the ``art'' of
modelling that are easily overlooked in more
theoretical expositions. More pragmatic than
ideological, the authors systematically work through
the large range of ``tricks'' that reveal the real
power of the BUGS software, for example, dealing with
missing data, censoring, grouped data, prediction,
ranking, parameter constraints, and so on. Many of the
examples are biostatistical, but they do not require
domain knowledge and are generalisable to a wide range
of other application areas. Full code and data for
examples, exercises, and some solutions can be found
on the book's website.

Dennis, B. The R Student Companion 2012   book URL 
Abstract: R is the amazing, free, open-access software package
for scientific graphs and calculations used by
scientists worldwide. The R Student Companion is a
student-oriented manual describing how to use R in
high school and college science and mathematics
courses. Written for beginners in scientific
computation, the book assumes the reader has just some
high school algebra and has no computer programming
background. The author presents applications drawn
from all sciences and social sciences and includes the
most often used features of R in an appendix. In
addition, each chapter provides a set of computational
challenges: exercises in R calculations that are
designed to be performed alone or in groups. Several
of the chapters explore algebra concepts that are
highly useful in scientific applications, such as
quadratic equations, systems of linear equations,
trigonometric functions, and exponential
functions. Each chapter provides an instructional
review of the algebra concept, followed by a hands-on
guide to performing calculations and graphing in R. R
is intuitive, even fun. Fantastic, publication-quality
graphs of data, equations, or both can be produced
with little effort. By integrating mathematical
computation and scientific illustration early in a
student's development, R use can enhance one's
understanding of even the most difficult scientific
concepts. While R has gained a strong reputation as a
package for statistical analysis, The R Student
Companion approaches R more completely as a
comprehensive tool for scientific computing and
graphing.

Noel, Y. Psychologie statistique avec R 2013   book URL 
Abstract: This book provides a detailed presentation of all
basics of statistical inference for psychologists,
both in a fisherian and a bayesian approach. Although
many authors have recently advocated for the use of
bayesian statistics in psychology (Wagenmaker et al.,
2010, 2011; Kruschke, 2010; Rouder et al., 2009)
statistical manuals for psychologists barely mention
them. This manual provides a full bayesian toolbox
for commonly encountered problems in psychology and
social sciences, for comparing proportions, variances
and means, and discusses the advantages. But all
foundations of the frequentist approach are also
provided, from data description to probability and
density, through combinatorics and set algebra. A
special emphasis has been put on the analysis of
categorical data and contingency tables. Binomial and
multinomial models with beta and Dirichlet priors are
presented, and their use for making (between rows or
between cells) contrasts in contingency tables is
detailed on real data. An automatic search of the
best model for all problem types is implemented in the
AtelieR package, available on CRAN. ANOVA is also
presented in a Bayesian flavor (using BIC), and
illustrated on real data with the help of the AtelieR
and R2STATS packages (a GUI for GLM and GLMM in R).
In addition to classical and Bayesian inference on
means, direct and Bayesian inference on effect size
and standardized effects are presented, in agreement
with recent APA recommendations.

Knell, R.J. Introductory R: A Beginner's Guide to Data
Visualisation and Analysis using R
2013   book URL 
Abstract: R is now the most widely used statistical software in
academic science and it is rapidly expanding into
other fields such as finance. R is almost limitlessly
flexible and powerful, hence its appeal, but can be
very difficult for the novice user. There are no easy
pull-down menus, error messages are often cryptic and
simple tasks like importing your data or exporting a
graph can be difficult and frustrating. Introductory
R is written for the novice user who knows a bit about
statistics but who hasn't yet got to grips with the
ways of R. This book: walks you through the basics of
R's command line interface; gives a set of simple
rules to follow to make sure you import your data
properly; introduces the script editor and gives
advice on workflow; contains a detailed introduction
to drawing graphs in R and gives advice on how to deal
with some of the most common errors that you might
encounter. The techniques of statistical analysis in
R are illustrated by a series of chapters where
experimental and survey data are analysed. There is a
strong emphasis on using real data from real
scientific research, with all the problems and
uncertainty that implies, rather than well-behaved
made-up data that give ideal and easy to analyse
results.

Hilbe, J. Methods of Statistical Model Estimation 2013   book URL 
Abstract: Methods of Statistical Model Estimation examines the
most important and popular methods used to estimate
parameters for statistical models and provide
informative model summary statistics. Designed for R
users, the book is also ideal for anyone wanting to
better understand the algorithms used for statistical
model fitting. The text presents algorithms for the
estimation of a variety of regression procedures using
maximum likelihood estimation, iteratively reweighted
least squares regression, the EM algorithm, and MCMC
sampling. Fully developed, working R code is
constructed for each method. The book starts with OLS
regression and generalized linear models, building to
two-parameter maximum likelihood models for both
pooled and panel models. It then covers a random
effects model estimated using the EM algorithm and
concludes with a Bayesian Poisson model using
Metropolis-Hastings sampling. The book's coverage is
innovative in several ways. First, the authors use
executable computer code to present and connect the
theoretical content. Therefore, code is written for
clarity of exposition rather than stability or speed
of execution. Second, the book focuses on the
performance of statistical estimation and downplays
algebraic niceties. In both senses, this book is
written for people who wish to fit statistical models
and understand them.

Chen, D. Applied Meta-Analysis with R 2013   book URL 
Abstract: In biostatistical research and courses, practitioners
and students often lack a thorough understanding of
how to apply statistical methods to synthesize
biomedical and clinical trial data. Filling this
knowledge gap, Applied Meta-Analysis with R shows how
to implement statistical meta-analysis methods to real
data using R. Drawing on their extensive research and
teaching experiences, the authors provide detailed,
step-by-step explanations of the implementation of
meta-analysis methods using R. Each chapter gives
examples of real studies compiled from the
literature. After presenting the data and necessary
background for understanding the applications, various
methods for analyzing meta-data are introduced. The
authors then develop analysis code using the
appropriate R packages and functions. This systematic
approach helps readers thoroughly understand the
analysis methods and R implementation, enabling them
to use R and the methods to analyze their own
meta-data. Suitable as a graduate-level text for a
meta-data analysis course, the book is also a valuable
reference for practitioners and biostatisticians (even
those with little or no experience in using R) in
public health, medical research, governmental
agencies, and the pharmaceutical industry.

Bellanger, L. and Tomassone, R. Exploration de données et méthodes statistiques avec le logiciel R 2014 , pp. 480  book URL 
Abstract: La Statistique envahit pratiquement tous les
domaines d'application, aucun n'en est exclus; elle
permet d'explorer et d'analyser des corpus de
données de plus en plus volumineux : l'ère
des big data et du data mining s'ouvre à nous !
Cette omniprésence s'accompagne bien souvent de
l'absence de regard critique tant sur l'origine des
données que sur la manière de les traiter.
La facilité d'utilisation des logiciels de
traitement statistique permet de fournir quasi
instantanément des graphiques et des
résultats numériques. Le risque est donc
grand d'une acceptation aveugle des conclusions qui
découlent de son emploi, comme simple citoyen ou
comme homme politique. Les auteurs insistent sur les
concepts sans négliger la rigueur, ils
décrivent les outils de décryptage des
données. L'ouvrage couvre un large spectre de
méthodes allant du pré-traitement des
données aux méthodes de prévision, en
passant par celles permettant leur visualisation et
leur synthèse. De nombreux exemples issus de
champs d'application variés sont traités
à l'aide du logiciel libre R, dont les commandes
sont commentées. L'ouvrage est destiné aux
étudiants de masters scientifiques ou
d'écoles d'ingénieurs ainsi qu'aux
professionnels voulant utiliser la Statistique de
manière réfléchie : des sciences de la
vie à l'archéologie, de la sociologie à
l'analyse financière.

Ricci, V. R : un ambiente opensource per l'analisi statistica
dei dati

Abstract: This paper would be a short introduction and overview
about the language and environment for statistical
analysis R, without entering in specific details too
much computational. I give a look about this
opensource software pointing out its main features,
its functionalities, its pros and cons describing some
libraries and the kind of analysis they support. I
supply a summary, with a short description, about many
resources concerning R that can be found in the Web:
the most are in English language, but there are also
some in the Italian language. The aim of this work is
to contribute in increasing of the use of the R
environment in Italy among statistical researchers
trying to ``advertise'' this software and its
opensource philosophy.

Abstract: This paper deals with distribution fitting using R
environment for statistical computing. It treats
briefly some theoretical issues and it points out
especially practical ones proposing some examples of R
statements for data graphical exploration and
presentation, parameters' estimates of patterns and
tests for goodness of fit.
