Jupyter Notebooks (in R)

Niklas Pfister and me have created some jupyter notebooks. They are self-contained and contain several coding exercises. As such, they may be a good addition to the book. Currently, we have notebooks for the topics

They can be downloaded here. The package contains a "readme" with some instructions for installing jupyter notebook (we apologize if the instructions are out-of-date). Most importantly, you may want to run "setupNotebook.ipynb" first to make sure that everything is working. Feel free to use the notebooks in your course or seminar. Please send me an email if you are lecturing a course and you are interested in the solutions.
