The list operates in English as a casual look at the archives would have told you.

You _really_ want to read 'An Introduction to R' -- which came with R installation, or an equivalent manual. There are lots of them, the website and the mirrors of carry a couple free pdf manuals. As for your question:

    > skewness(worldindex05r[,c(V2,V3)])

is one of several ways to select specific columns.

[ How to plot x vs y ]

One of several ways to plot one variable against another is

    > plot(worldindex05r$V1, worldindex05r$V2)

How to take logarithms is left as an exercise to the reader ...

[ Where is linear regression, simple and multiple ]

Had you read the manual, you would know that

    >"linear regrqession")

can provide a first lead, which can often be complemented by

    > RSiteSearch("linear regression")

In this case you are out of luck because as statistics refers to this as a 'linear model', so

    > help(lm)

is what you need.

| Vielen Dank im voraus.

It's a pleasure, but you now owe it to yourself to a) read some of the manuals and b) the posting guide for this list.

[ R docs are hard for non-mathematicians, and missing in German ]

This is a _volunteer_ project. Feel free to close some of the gaps by submitting a German language manual. I am sure someone would be glad a to proofread it for you.

[ Statement about the state of the art, or lack thereof, in Banking deleted. ]

Yes, some of us work in the same industry.
