Finance with R
There are many possible statistical programs that can be used in financial research and applications. R has grown tremendously in recent years, both in terms of capabilities and users. There are more and more Finance applications used in R. R, in addition, runs on Macintoshes.
I myself attended a workshop “Finance with R” in November 2010 organised by OptiRisk Systems and got a wealth of new knowledge and tricks from more experienced professionals in this field.
