You're currently learning a lecture from the course:
In order to have thorough understanding of the main topic, you should have the basic concept of the following terms:
Atomic Vectors are the simplest objects in the R Programming Language. In R, variables are actually known as vectors as the values/elements stored by them are all of the same type not arbitrary like ‘lists’ and they are stored in one dimension.
Open RStudio and save your ‘.r’ file.
If you want to store the same type of data, the atomic vectors are the best way to do that because they allow the efficient retrieval and storage of data.
You can utilize vectors as:
vector_name <- value/elements
Where you can store single or multiple elements in a vector.
If you want to check if a variable is a vector or not, the you can use this built-in function:
If the result comes TRUE, then it is a vector.
In this video, we learnt about Atomic Vectors in R and how they can be created. We also discussed how we can use them and why we do we use them.
