1 Introduction to the Plot Function It is easy to produce publication-quality graphics in R. There are many excellent R packages at your finger tips to do this; some of which include lattice and ggplot2 (see the help files and documentation for these). While in the course of this book we will revert to using these “high end” plotting packages, some fundamentals of plotting need to bedded down. Therefore in this section we will focus on the simplest plots—those which can be produced using the plot function, which is a base function that come with R.
