The S language is a statistics programming language and environment. We will use it in the early part of this course as well as in the next course. The S language comes in several flavors. S-PLUS is on the Department system. In addition, one of your textbooks is an S language reference.
Alternatively, for those of you for whom it is more convenient to put software directly onto your computers at home, you have two choices.
R is an open source implementation of the S language. It is freely available. You may download a copy to your home computer here. There are precompiled binaries for Linux, Windows, and Mac as well as source code if you want to compile it yourself.
Alternatively, if you have a Windows system, you may borrow a CD and put S-PLUS onto your computer. Our department license for S-PLUS allows students to copy the software to their home computers.
We will use Matlab later in the course. You will learn more about Matlab when you take the course in Linear Algebra.
