Probability and Statistics for Data Science: Math + R + Data covers "math stat"―distributions, expected value, estimation etc.―but takes the phrase "Data Science" in the title quite seriously: * Real datasets are used extensively. * All data analysis is supported by R coding. * Includes many Data Science applications, such as PCA, mixture distributions, random graph models, Hidden Markov models, linear and logistic regression, and neural networks. * Leads the student to think critically about the "how" and "why" of statistics, and to "see the big picture." * Not "theorem/proof"-oriented, but concepts and models are stated in a mathematically precise manner. Prerequisites are calculus, some matrix algebra, and some experience in programming.
