Using R on ARC
R is a powerful free software environment for statistical computing. It provides access to a wide variety of statistical methods (linear and nonlinear modelling, classical statistical tests, time-series analysis, classification, clustering, etc.) as well as to graphical techniques. R is highly extensible and a large number of additional libraries are available. A number of libraries are already installed on the ARC systems and more can be installed on request.
R has fairly frequent releases and we try to keep up to date. Check the versions available using
module spider R
To avoid incompatibilities, each new R installation uses its own installation of the supported libraries.
