Thus, to create a scalar constant x with value 5 we type: x <- 5 and not x = 5. Notice that there is a potential ambiguity if you get the spacing wrong. Compare our x <- 5, ‘x gets 5’, with x < - 5 where there is a space between the ‘less than’ and ‘minus’ symbol. ’ and, depending on the current value of x, would evaluate to the answer either TRUE or FALSE. = ! & | ~ <- -> $ : arithmetic (plus, minus, times, divide, integer quotient, modulo, power) relational (greater than, greater than or equals, less than, less than or equals, equals, not equals) logical (not, and, or) model formulae (‘is modelled as a function of’) assignment (gets) list indexing (the ‘element name’ operator) create a sequence Several of these operators have different meaning inside model formulae.

The find function tells you what package something is in: find("lowess") [1] "package:stats" while apropos returns a character vector giving the names of all objects in the search list that match your (potentially partial) enquiry: apropos("lm") [1] [4] [7] [10] [13] [16] [19] [22] [25] [28] [31] [34] [37] [40] [43] [46] [49] ". glm" ". null" ". g. linear models, lm) example(lm) and you will see the printed and graphical output produced by the lm function. ". __C__glm" ". 2 7 Demonstrations of R functions These can be useful for seeing the range of things that R can do.

This is only likely to become a real problem in practice if you have to subtract similarly sized but very large numbers. A dramatic loss in accuracy under these circumstances is called ‘catastrophic cancellation error’. It occurs when an operation on two numbers increases relative error substantially more than it increases absolute error. You need to be careful in programming when you want to test whether or not two computed numbers are equal. R will assume that you mean ‘exactly equal’, and what that means depends upon machine precision.
