R Dataset / Package HSAUR / planets

Documentation

On this Picostat.com statistics page, you will find information about the planets data set which pertains to Exoplanets Data . The planets data set is found in the HSAUR R package. You can load the planets data set in R by issuing the following command at the console data("planets"). This will load the data into a variable called planets. If R says the planets data set is not found, you can try installing the package by issuing this command install.packages("HSAUR") and then attempt to reload the data. If you need to download R, you can go to the R project website. You can download a CSV (comma separated values) version of the planets R data set. The size of this file is about 1,579 bytes.


Exoplanets Data

Description

Data on planets outside the Solar System.

Usage

data("planets")

Format

A data frame with 101 observations from 101 exoplanets on the following 3 variables.

mass

Jupiter mass of the planet.

period

period in earth days.

eccen

the radial eccentricity of the planet.

Details

From the properties of the exoplanets found up to now it appears that the theory of planetary development constructed for the planets of the Solar System may need to be reformulated. The exoplanets are not at all like the nine local planets that we know so well. A first step in the process of understanding the exoplanets might be to try to classify them with respect to their known properties.

Examples

  data("planets", package = "HSAUR")
  require("scatterplot3d")
