An important part of scientific computing and data analysis is graphical visualization, an area in which R is very strong. R has many specialized graph types, some of which we will explore later. However, for many scientific purposes just a few types will suffice. We note especially graphs for data, functions, and histograms. We’ll show simple examples of these first, and then show how they can be customized. For details on R graphics, see the book by Murrell [47].
