As per the Details section of ?postscript:

In your code above, change 'onefile = TRUE' to 'onefile = FALSE'.

\includegraphics[width=4in]{myplot.eps} \includegraphics[height=4in]{myplot.eps} \includegraphics[scale=0.75]{myplot.eps} \includegraphics[width=0.4\textwidth]{myplot.eps}

You might want to review the following document:

ftp://ftp.tex.ac.uk/tex-archive/info/epslatex.pdf

For including formulae in R plots, see ?plotmath. You can run example(plotmath) and there are many posts in the r-help archives on this.

Beyond the above, you may want to look into using SWeave, whereby you can create entire documents, with nicely formatted tables and plots directly from R code. More information here:

There are also a couple of articles on R News:

Friedrich Leisch. Sweave, part I: Mixing R and LATEX. R News, 2(3):28-31, December 2002.

Friedrich Leisch. Sweave, part II: Package vignettes. R News, 3(2):21-24, October 2003.
