Statistical Computing 2
This website contains teaching materials for part of the second computing unit of the taught component of the Computational Statistics and Data Science (COMPASS) PhD programme. The source for this website is available here. The website for the first computing unit can be found here.
The material provided here focusses on how
R can be interfaced with
C++ via the
Rcpp package. More specifically, we guide the students through the following steps:
Rcpppackage for easier/safer integration between

Some of the chapters contain programming exercises, focussed on exploiting the
Rcpp family of packages to speed-up statistical computations.
