R provides access to a variety of statistical and graphical techniques including linear and non-linear modelling, classical statistical tests, time-series analysis, classification and clustering. Functionally, the program is considered comparable to SAS. However, R has the advantage of being open source and thus freely available.
R for Windows is installed on all Library and StudentIT lab computers. It may also be available in some Faculty and Graduate School labs.
R can be downloaded from the publisher's website
Additional enhancements of R have been created by RStudio. A range of products are listed on their website including related support services specific to the products.
