Learning statistics with R

This repository contains all the source materials for Learning Statistics with R. There are two versions of the content, the original version (LSR v0.6) written in LaTeX and the bookdown adaptation (LSR v0.6.1). The two versions are kept in distinct folders to ensure they share no dependencies.


To generate the bookdown version, source the bookdown/serve_book.R script. The generated book appears in the bookdown/_book subdirectory.


To typeset the original LaTeX version, the root file is original/pdf/lsr.tex, and the generated file is the original/pdf/lsr.pdf file it produces.


GitHub pages deploys the site from the docs directory; to publish an updated version of the bookdown version to just copy the entire contents of bookdown/_book to docs/book, and push to GitHub.
