# Stat 673: Introduction to Statistical Computing (Autumn 2008)

## Peter F. Craigmile

Office: Cockins Hall, Room 427

**Note:** The course that appears here used to be offered as a
first year masters level introductory course under quarters. The semester level
course, Stat 6730, is a second year master level course, and contains
more advanced (and more modern) material. Some of the information
that appears here will be out-of-date (e.g., before Rstudio,
rmarkdown, etc.)

Stat 673 introduces students to connectivity as well the statistical packages that are available in the Department of Statistics. With each package, students should be able to manipulate data, use the online help, present graphical and numerical summaries, carry out some statistical analyses, and do simple Monte Carlo experiments. Students should also be able to present and discuss the results obtained from each computer package.
