R package for Computational Actuarial Science

A webpage for the book is now hosted on

http://cas.uqam.ca/

So far, it is a very basic page, but information regarding the package can be found there. For instance, to install the package, with all the datasets, the R code is

> install.packages("CASdatasets", repos = "http://cas.uqam.ca/pub/R/")

The reference manual provides a description of all datasets.

    I’m very sorry, but I’m having some troubles with installing this package (whether I do it using “install.packages” code or uploading as a .tar.gz file). Here’s a screenshot of the problem:

  5. Hello Arthur
    Having purchased a copy of your text, I am having difficulty accessing the site http://cas.uqam.ca/ – and installing the package under R version 3.1.2.
    Would you please advise on how I can complete these tasks?
    Thanking you in anticipation.
    Best regards,
    Jay
