In R, the function for calculating the median is simply called 'median()'. The median is a measure of central tendency that represents the middle value of a dataset when it is sorted in ascending or descending order. It is useful for summarizing the central value of a dataset, especially when the data contains outliers or is skewed. The 'median()' function in R is commonly used in data analysis and statistical calculations to provide a robust measure of the center of a dataset.
