In Chapter 6, I’ll discuss the way R represents missing data values and distinguishes among different object types. You’re given a primer on plotting in Chapter 7, using both built-in and contributed functionality (via the ggplot2 package—see Wickham, 2009); this chapter lays the groundwork for graphical design discussed later in the book. In Chapter 8, I’ll cover the fundamentals of reading data in from external files, essential for analysis of your own collected data. xxviii Introduction Part II: Programming Part II focuses on getting you familiar with common R programming mechanisms.

5 6 7 7 7 8 8 9 10 12 Getting Started 15 2 NUMERICS, ARITHMETIC, ASSIGNMENT, AND VECTORS In its simplest role, R can function as a mere desktop calculator. In this chapter, I’ll discuss how to use the software for arithmetic. I’ll also show how to store results so you can use them later in other calculations. Then, you’ll learn about vectors, which let you handle multiple values at once. Vectors are an essential tool in R, and much of R’s functionality was designed with vector operations in mind.

RData file if your script files are saved. RData file) are simply created once more. This can be useful if you’re working on multiple problems at one time because it can be easy to mistakenly overwrite an object when relying solely on the stand-alone default workspace. Keeping your collection of R scripts separate is therefore a simple way to separate several projects without needing to worry about overwriting anything important that may have been stored previously. R also provides a number of ways to write individual objects, such as data sets and image files of plots, to disk, which you’ll look at in Chapter 8.
