1.7 Main references and credits

The following great reference books have been used extensively for preparing these notes:

  • James et al. (2013) (linear regression, logistic regression, PCA, clustering),
  • Peña (2002) (linear regression, logistic regression, PCA, clustering),
  • Bartholomew et al. (2008) (PCA).

The icons used in the notes were designed by madebyoliver, freepik, and roundicons from Flaticon.

In addition, these notes are possible due to the existence of these incredible pieces of software: Xie (2016a), Xie (2016b), Allaire et al. (2016), and R Core Team (2015).
