Extensively updated to reflect the evolution of statistics and computing, the second edition of the bestselling **R Graphics** comes complete with new packages and new examples. Paul Murrell, widely known as the leading expert on R graphics, has developed an in-depth resource that helps both neophyte and seasoned users master the intricacies of R graphics.
