# Statistical software

- In theory you can use any statistical software for performing the calculations in the lectures - and the exercises, but - supervision will only be given for MINITAB and R.
- For the exercises the solutions will only be given for MINITAB.

## MINITAB

NTNU holds a cite license for MINITAB (Windows), you find all information you need here: MINITAB MINITAB is also available on several of the data labs on campus.

If you want to run MINTAB but work on a mac or under linux you may run remote desktop to the Windows-servers cauchy1.math.ntnu.no or cauchy2.math.ntnu.no, by logging in with your "Win-Ntnu-No" user account.

The first exercise will serve as an introduction to MINITAB.

## R

Alternatively R can be used. R is available for free download at The Comprehensive R Archive Network (Windows, Linux and Mac).

No introduction to R is planned, but may be given.

A nice introduction to R is the book P. Dalgaard: Introductory statistics with R, 2nd edition, Springer and several manuals can be found at CRAN.

If you are unfamiliar with R, it is suggested that you go through the interactive session at the end of the manual “An Introduction to R”, which comes with the software.
