Abstract The package lg for the R programming language provides implementations of recent methodological advances on applications of the local Gaussian correlation. This includes the estimation of the local Gaussian correlation itself, multivariate density estimation, conditional density estimation, various tests for independence and conditional independence, as well as a graphical module for creating dependence maps. This paper describes the lg package, its principles, and its practical use.
