          R News (www.r-project.org -> "Documentation: Newsletter", (4/1) June 2004, pp. 29-32, and (2/2) June 2002, pp. 2-10 contain excellent articles on date-time classes and time series capabilities in R. In addition, I have found ch. 14 in Venables and Ripley (2002) Modern Applied Statistics in S, 4th ed. (Springer) and the vignette for the zoo package to be excellent.

          Greater flexibility in modeling and analysis are provided with the Rmetrics project (www.rmetrics.org or
http://www.itp.phys.ethz.ch/econophysics/R/), but that also requires greater effort to learn.
