# Introduction to R

R is a programming language and originated in the field of statistics. It is widely accepted as the core language of data science. As the core of the R language is functional, R has powerful features such as applying algorithms to data in parallel and passing around functionalities. In addition, it adopted an approach in which a generic language is valid for all objects. For example, calling

```
plot(A)
```

does something different depending on what A actually is. Therefore, packages in R often create canonical and well-suited visualizations and users get those just by plotting the respective objects.
