In addition to that though, I also make use of the R tikzDevice package to ensure that the fonts in my R plots are consistent with my LaTeX document. As it turns out, R commands are output at a low level as tikZ commands . Continue reading “R Graphical Representation – Installing tikzDevice Package”
