Module contents
The lecture gives an intuitive introduction into the use of the statistics software R. We start by introducing the basic handling of R and the syntax of its programming language. We use those to obtain the first statistical analyses from R. The next important step is to create informative graphics to represent the statistical results. Finally, we look into programming concepts that allow for more complex statistical analyses.
