Weaving LaTex and R: Reproducible Research Using Sweave

Abstract:  This presentation will be a demonstration of Sweave software which allows users to merge the LaTex typesetting environment with the R statistical programming environment within RStudio. Topics covered will include adding chunks of code to your document, running code, compiling the pdf, and production/placement of graphics. While convenience is ample motivation for adoption, the new software is a perfect platform for reproducible research.  Sweave connects the analysis and reporting of research such that independent readers of the document can reproduce and/or make modifications easily.
