19, so R uses NA to signal that the value is unknown. Consider the following: x <- c(0, 1, 2) x / x ## [1] NaN 1 1 The NaN symbol denotes a value which is “not a number” which arises as a result of attempting to compute the indeterminate 0/0. This symbol is sometimes used when a calculation does not make sense. 5 Here R has tried to evaluate 1/0 and reports the infinite result as Inf. na() function should be used to detect them. ) The ! 2. Exercises 1 Assume 4 binary digit accuracy for the following computations.

B2 b3 · · · . b2 b3 · · · . b3 · · · , so b2 = 1. Repeating twice more yields b3 = b4 = 0. 110011001100 · · · . 8 exactly. Some rounding error will occur in the storage. We can observe the rounding error with the following experiment. With exact arithmetic, (5/4) × (4/5) = 1, so (5/4) × (n × 4/5) should be exactly n for any value of n. 004 03:50:59, 2 . e. it is equal for some values, but not equal for n = 3, 6, or 7. The errors are very small, but non-zero. Rounding error tends to accumulate in most calculations, so usually a long series of calculations will result in larger errors than a short one.

Since the very beginning, base graphics has been designed to allow easy production of good quality scientific plots. In this chapter we will concentrate on base graphics. The grid package provides the basis for a newer graphics system. It also has facilities to produce good quality graphics, but the programmer has access to the individual pieces of a graph, and can modify them: a graph is more like a physical model being built and displayed, rather than just drawn. The lattice and ggplot2 packages provide functions for highlevel plots based on grid graphics.
