IPSUR-1.0 is making its way through CRAN. It is a snapshot of the development version of the following textbook:

Title: Introduction to Probability and Statistics using R, First Edition ISBN: 978-0-557-24979-4
Publisher: me

The book is targeted for an undergraduate course in probability and statistics. The prerequisites are a couple semesters of calculus and a little bit of linear algebra. I have used various drafts of this document to supplement my lectures for over four years.

IPSUR is FREE, in the GNU sense of the word. A pdf copy (plus the LaTeX source) is on the R-Forge Project Page:


Alternatively, a person can do the following at the command prompt:


There are still many important topics, examples, and (especially) exercises missing. I will add them as time and two toddlers permit. If you would like to preview the daily-built, bleeding-edge latest version you can get it with

install.packages("IPSUR", repos="http://R-Forge.R-project.org")

Please route IPSUR-specific emails to the respective R-Forge mailing lists:

RcmdrPlugin.IPSUR is a plugin for the R Commander to accompany IPSUR. The update to version 0.1-7 is an important one, because it squashes a long-standing incompatibility problem with other plugins. The naming scheme for menus is also updated to be consistent with the other plugins in particular, and naming conventions in general.


P.S. If you are thinking to print parts of IPSUR yourself then I recommend the publisher-quality PDF linked from the Downloads section of the R-Forge Project Page.
