This constructs a list (R vector) of 10 consecutive integers:
Out[1]= | |
This uses a general vector constructor in R to construct a vector of numbers:
Out[1]= | |
To suppress the output, or when no output is needed, put a semicolon at the end of the R code, in which case returns Null:
When scalars are entered, they are automatically considered vectors of length 1 by R. This is reflected in RLink:
Out[1]= | |
By default, real numeric quantities are interpreted as doubles:
Out[2]= | |
One way to have R interpret them as integers is to use R's as.integer function:
Out[3]= | |
This returns a more general sequence:
Out[1]= | |
Mathematica's equivalent follows:
Out[2]= | |
This computes the sine function on the sequence from the previous example (most functions in R are vectorized, just as in Mathematica):
Out[1]= | |
This is the same, but using explicit function mapping (sapply in R corresponds to Map in Mathematica):
Out[2]= | |
The second method is slower, however, just as it would be in Mathematica:
This is a slightly more complex example. Here, a function is mapped that takes a value of the independent variable and returns it back together with the value of the function (here, sine) wrapped in a vector:
Out[1]= | |
Here is Mathematica's equivalent for the rhs of the assignment from the previous example:
Out[2]= | |
You can use larger pieces of R code inside . In such a case, however, you should wrap your statements in a block (curly braces):
Out[1]= | |
This splits a string, and actually returns a list rather than a vector, which is reflected in extra curly braces:
Out[1]= | |
Note that you have to escape the quotation marks.
This generates a random 5×5 matrix:
Out[1]= | |
This computes eigenvalues and eigenvectors:
Out[2]= | |
You can see that the result is an R list and has a non-empty attribute set (attribute names); therefore, it is represented as a general R object with a head RObject. This topic is covered in more details in "R Data Types in RLink" and the RObject reference page.
This extracts only eigenvectors:
Out[3]= | |
Or eigenvalues:
Out[4]= | |
This is the same in Mathematica (eigenvectors do not necessarily have to be the same in this case):
Out[5]= | |
This creates a random matrix in Mathematica:
Out[1]= | |
Send it to R:
Out[2]= | |
The result of this element-wise logical comparison is a logical vector (matrix):
Out[3]= | |
Test that the result is of a logical type:
Out[4]= | |
This lists the current objects present in your R workspace:
Out[1]= | |
