Data science in R: a case studies approach to computational reasoning and problem solving

By: Nolan, Deborah.
Contributor(s): Lang, Duncan Temple.
Series: Chapman & Hall/CRC the R series. Publisher: Boca Raton CRC Press 2015Description: xxiii, 515 p.ISBN: 9781482234817.Subject(s): R (Computer program language) | Statistics - Data processingDDC classification: 519.50285513 Summary: Large data and efficiency Data Science in R: A Case Studies Approach to Computational Reasoning and Problem Solving illustrates the details involved in solving real computational problems encountered in data analysis. It reveals the dynamic and iterative process by which data analysts approach a problem and reason about different ways of implementing solutions. The book’s collection of projects, comprehensive sample solutions, and follow-up exercises encompass practical topics pertaining to data processing, including: 1.Non-standard, complex data formats, such as robot logs and email messages 2.Text processing and regular expressions 3.Newer technologies, such as Web scraping, Web services, Keyhole Markup Language (KML), and Google Earth 4.Statistical methods, such as classification trees, k-nearest neighbors, and naïve Bayes 5.Visualization and exploratory data analysis 6.Relational databases and Structured Query Language (SQL) 7.Simulation 8.Algorithm implementation 9.Large data and efficiency (https://www.crcpress.com/Data-Science-in-R-A-Case-Studies-Approach-to-Computational-Reasoning-and/Nolan-Lang/9781482234817)
