Cowpertwait, P. S. P., & Metcalfe, A. (2009). Introductory Time Series with R. Springer.
This book gives you a step-by-step introduction to analysing time series using the open source software :R:. Once the model has been introduced it is used to generate synthetic data, using :R: code, and these generated data are then used to estimate its parameters. This sequence confirms understanding of both the model and the :R: routine for fitting it to the data. Finally, the model is applied to an analysis of a historical data set. By using :R:, the whole procedure can be reproduced by the reader. All the data sets used in the book are available on the website http://www.massey.ac.nz/~pscowper/ts. The book is written for undergraduate students of mathematics, economics, business and finance, geography, engineering and related disciplines, and postgraduate students who may need to analyze time series as part of their taught program or their research.

Varmuza, K., & Filzmoser, P. (2009). Introduction to Multivariate Statistical Analysis in Chemometrics. Boca Raton, FL: CRC Press.
Using formal descriptions, graphical illustrations, practical examples, and :R: software tools, Introduction to Multivariate Statistical Analysis in Chemometrics presents simple yet thorough explanations of the most important multivariate statistical methods for analyzing chemical data. It includes discussions of various statistical methods, such as principal component analysis, regression analysis, classification methods, and clustering. Written by a chemometrician and a statistician, the book reflects both the practical approach of chemometrics and the more formally oriented one of statistics. To enable a better understanding of the statistical methods, the authors apply them to real data examples from chemistry. They also examine results of the different methods, comparing traditional approaches with their robust counterparts. In addition, the authors use the freely available :R: package to implement methods, encouraging readers to go through the examples and adapt the procedures to their own problems. Focusing on the practicality of the methods and the validity of the results, this book offers concise mathematical descriptions of many multivariate methods and employs graphical schemes to visualize key concepts. It effectively imparts a basic understanding of how to apply statistical methods to multivariate scientific data.

Albert, J. (2009). Bayesian Computation with R. (2nd ed.) Springer.
Bayesian Computing Using :R: introduces Bayesian modeling by the use of computation using the :R: language. The early chapters present the basic tenets of Bayesian thinking by use of familiar one and two-parameter inferential problems. Bayesian computational methods such as Laplace’s method, rejection sampling, and the SIR algorithm are illustrated in the context of a random effects model. The construction and implementation of Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) methods is introduced. These simulation-based algorithms are implemented for a variety of Bayesian applications such as normal and binary response regression, hierarchical modeling, order-restricted inference, and robust modeling. Algorithms written in :R: are used to develop Bayesian tests and assess Bayesian models by use of the posterior predictive distribution. The use of :R: to interface with WinBuGS, a popular MCMC computing language, is described with several illustrative examples. The second edition contains several new topics such as the use of mixtures of conjugate priors and the use of Zellner’s g priors to choose between models in linear regression. There are more illustrations of the construction of informative prior distributions, such as the use of conditional means priors and multivariate normal priors in binary regressions. The new edition contains changes in the :R: code illustrations according to the latest edition of the LearnBayes package.

Petris, G., Petrone, S., & Campagnoli, P. (2009). Dynamic Linear Models with R. Springer.
After a detailed introduction to general state space models, this book focuses on dynamic linear models, emphasizing their Bayesian analysis. Whenever possible it is shown how to compute estimates and forecasts in closed form; for more complex models, simulation techniques are used. A final chapter covers modern sequential Monte Carlo algorithms. The book illustrates all the fundamental steps needed to use dynamic linear models in practice, using :R:. Many detailed examples based on real data sets are provided to show how to set up a specific model, estimate its parameters, and use it for forecasting. All the code used in the book is available online. No prior knowledge of Bayesian statistics or time series analysis is required, although familiarity with basic statistics and :R: is assumed.

Ritz, C., & Streibig, J. C. (2009). Nonlinear Regression with R. New York: Springer.
:R: is a rapidly evolving lingua franca of graphical display and statistical analysis of experiments from the applied sciences. Currently, :R: offers a wide range of functionality for nonlinear regression analysis, but the relevant functions, packages and documentation are scattered across the :R: environment. This book provides a coherent and unified treatment of nonlinear regression with :R: by means of examples from a diversity of applied sciences such as biology, chemistry, engineering, medicine and toxicology. The book starts out giving a basic introduction to fitting nonlinear regression models in :R:. Subsequent chapters explain the salient features of the main fitting function nls(), the use of model diagnostics, how to deal with various model departures, and carry out hypothesis testing. In the final chapter grouped-data structures, including an example of a nonlinear mixed-effects regression model, are considered.

Zuur, A., Ieno, E. N., Walker, N., Saveiliev, A. A., & Smith, G. M. (2009). Mixed Effects Models and Extensions in Ecology with R. New York: Springer.
Building on the successful Analysing Ecological Data (2007) by Zuur, Ieno and Smith, the authors now provide an expanded introduction to using regression and its extensions in analysing ecological data. As with the earlier book, real data sets from postgraduate ecological studies or research projects are used throughout. The first part of the book is a largely non-mathematical introduction to linear mixed effects modelling, GLM and GAM, zero inflated models, GEE, GLMM and GAMM. The second part provides ten case studies that range from koalas to deep sea research. These chapters provide an invaluable insight into analysing complex ecological datasets, including comparisons of different approaches to the same problem. By matching ecological questions and data structure to a case study, these chapters provide an excellent starting point to analysing your own data. Data and :R: code from all chapters are available from http://www.highstat.com.

Sheather, S. J. (2009). A Modern Approach to Regression with R. New York, NY: Springer.
A Modern Approach to Regression with R focuses on tools and techniques for building regression models using real-world data and assessing their validity. A key theme throughout the book is that it makes sense to base inferences or conclusions only on valid models. The regression output and plots that appear throughout the book have been generated using R. On the book website you will find the R code used in each example in the text. You will also find SAS-code and STATA-code to produce the equivalent output on the book website. Primers containing expanded explanations of R, SAS and STATA and their use in this book are also available on the book website. The book contains a number of new real data sets from applications ranging from rating restaurants, rating wines, predicting newspaper circulation and magazine revenue, comparing the performance of NFL kickers, and comparing finalists in the Miss America pageant across states. One of the aspects of the book that sets it apart from many other regression books is that complete details are provided for each example. The book is aimed at first year graduate students in statistics and could also be used for a senior undergraduate class.
