Dectecting from your email signature, you might be interested in having a
look on the task views 'econometrics' and 'finance', see
http://cran.at.r-project.org/src/contrib/Views/ as additional packages
whence you are familiar with R and want to apply certain methods.
Depending in which kind of statistical/econometric field you want to utilize
R, I am pretty sure that you will find at least the relevant sources that
serve as starting point.

An: [hidden email] Betreff: [R-sig-finance] How did you start with R?
I'm new to the R-Software, and would like to know, what literature you
recommend for learning R. Online or on paper, in English or German. Any
If I may add a URL to this list:
http://www.mayin.org/ajayshah/KB/R is a set of examples. It is useful for people who don't like to read
manuals and like to start writing code, and can guess the BNF of the
language they're dealing with by looking at working code fragments :-).
Thanks to all... it was amazing to get such a feedback to my innocent
little question. Will take me some time to work through it all. I hope
to get around to compile a list with my feedback to your suggestions.
