Installing R

Before you can run the R scripts that are an integral part of the learning process in this course, you
need to install the R platform on your computer system. The R platform is available free of charge
from the http://www.r-project.org website. You can choose the R platform speci c to your operating
system (e.g., Windows, Linux, Mac X, etc.) The download page contains the information you need to
install and con gure the R platform for writing and running R scripts. Below we provide a detailed
description of the process of installing the R platform on Windows. The installation in other
operating systems is similar.

Some students may nd it more convenient to have the R platform available on a USB drive, which
will allow for running the system in a foreign computer without actually installing it on that
computer. Instructions for the installation on a USB drive can be found at this site:
