All the datasets and the new or enhanced R functions used in the text book are collected into a package called TSA that can be downloaded and installed in R. This can be done by clicking the Packages menu and then selecting Set CRAN mirror. Again select a mirror site that is closest to you geographically, and a window containing the names of all available packages will pop up. In addition to our TSA package, you will need to install packages named leaps, locfit, MASS, mgcv, tseries, and uroot.
