Guidelines for a class project.

If you are using Matlab, you will need to use the fdaM package. To use this, download and unzip this file onto your computer, and make sure you have the head directory in your Matlab path. See also my CSCU workshop for more help.

If you are using R, it can be downloaded freely from the r-project webpages. You will need to install the fda library (see Lecture 4).

There are many R tutorials out there. You can find a very brief one here. But a basic introduction will be given in Lecture 4. A larger (but more technical) introduction is An Introduction to R by Venables et al. There is also the R wiki for more guides than you can handle. They also have some good Reference Cards.
