nohup: put your computer to work and leave

$ nohup R -q -f batch &

That was how I made my Department’s computer run a lot of computations in R from a remote shell, while being able to log out without killing the process (it runs on even if you log out). You might redirect the output somewhere (it gets saved in a file called nohup.out by default). Nohup stands for “Do not comply with HUP signals”.
