Environment for statistical computing and graphics

R is a language and environment for statistical computing and graphics. It provides a variety of statistical techniques, such as linear and nonlinear modeling, classical statistical tests, time-series analysis, classification and clustering. It also provides robust support for producing publication-quality data plots. A large amount of 3rd-party packages are available, greatly increasing its breadth and scope.

The R statistical computing environment has become the de-facto standard for writing statistical software among statisticians and has made substantial inroads in the social sciences. it is now possibly the most widely used statistical software in the world.
