This collection contains the on-line complements associated with the book:

Modern Applied Statistics with S-PLUS

by W.N. Venables & B.D. Ripley, Springer, 1999.

ISBN 0 387 98825 4.
[Details]

There are mirrors of this material at Oxford, Sydney, StatLib (Pittsburgh) and Wisconsin.

The `complements' provide an on-line updating of the book, as well as further details of technical material. They are now in several parts.

The current contents include

- Density estimation
- Gamma GLMs
- Local polynomial and local likelihood models
- BRUTO and MARS
- Tree-structured survival analysis
- Multiple correspondence analysis
- Factor analysis, rotation of principal-component fits
- Smooth estimates of survival and hazard functions
- Semi-parametric survival modelling
- Expected survival distributions
- Logspline fitting of spectral densities
- Bivariate spectral analysis
- Our spatial examples via S+SpatialStats

This material makes extensive use of user-contributed libraries,
including ```
HARE, hazcov, HEFT, KernSmooth, logspline,
lspec, mda, polyclass, sm, survcart
```

and `tssa`

, all
of which are available for Windows
(ported by BDR).

This gives an introduction to the new features of S-PLUS 5.x for Unix for x > 0.

This describes how to use our book with the R system. It provides both descriptions of some of the differences between R and S, and the modifications needed to run our examples. Versions of our libraries and scripts are available from the CRAN network of sites.

Bill Venables's paper on *Exegeses on
Linear Models* presented at the 1998 S-PLUS User's Conference
is available here for reference as a gzip-ed postscript file and as
PDF.

On the master site this table will show the dates and file sizes, but it may not at some mirror sites.

Postscript (2up) | |||||
---|---|---|---|---|---|

Date | .ps.gz | .zip | script | ||

Statistics | VR3stat.pdf [b ] | VR3stat.ps.gz [b ] | VR3stat.zip [b ] | VR3stat.q [b ] | |

R | VR3R.pdf [b ] | VR3R.ps.gz [b ] |

The `.zip`

files are intended for Windows users.

The PDF versions have extensive hyperlinks: viewers can be downloaded
from `www.adobe.com`,
and are also supplied with S-PLUS 4.x and 2000.

The postscript files are formatted for ISO A4 paper. Those in countries which ignore international standards may need to tell their print spooler to print on a different paper size or even remove the Paper Sizes comment. The layout will fit reasonably on so-called `letter' paper.
