This post is to announce the repository MathematicaVsR at GitHub that has example projects, code, and documents for comparing
My plan is to proclaim new completed Mathematica-vs-R projects here, in this discussion, and when appropriate make separate Community posts about them.
The development in the MathematicaVsR at GitHub repository aims to provide a collection of relatively simple but non-trivial example projects that illustrate the use of Mathematica and R in different statistical, machine learning, scientific, and software engineering programming activities.
Each of the projects has implementations and documents made with both
Mathematica and R -- hopefully that would allow comparison and
"Mathematica vs. R"
given at the
Wolfram Technology Conference 2015
is probably a good start.
As a warm-up of how to do the comparison see this mind-map (which is
made for Mathematica users):
In the following table the projects in italics are partially completed -- they have only a Mathematica or an R part. (Note that this is a screenshot, see the list of links below or the repository README.md page for a clickable table.)
The future projects are listed in order of their completion time
proximity -- the highest in the list would be committed the soonest.
Personal banking data obfuscation
Independent Component Analysis (ICA) programming and basic applications
Prefix trees (tries) programming and basic applications
High Performance Computing (HPC) projects -- Spark, H2O, etc.
Comparison of PCA, NNMF, and ICA over image de-noising
Informal verification of time series co-dependency
Functional parsers programming and basic applications
Lebesgue numerical integration
