### Mathematics for Machine Learning

Marc Peter Deisenroth, A. Aldo Faisal, Cheng Soon Ong ... 398 pages - Publisher: Cambridge Univ. Press; (April, 2020) ... Language: English - AmazonSIN: B083M7DBP6.

The fundamental mathematical tools needed to understand machine learning include linear algebra, analytic geometry, matrix decompositions, vector calculus, optimization, probability and statistics. These topics are traditionally taught in disparate courses, making it hard for data science or computer science students, or professionals, to efficiently learn the mathematics. This self-contained textbook bridges the gap between mathematical and machine learning texts, introducing the mathematical concepts with a minimum of prerequisites. It uses these concepts to derive four central machine learning methods: linear regression, principal component analysis, Gaussian mixture models and support vector machines. For students and others with a mathematical background, these derivations provide a starting point to machine learning texts. For those learning the mathematics for the first time, the methods help build intuition and practical experience with applying mathematical concepts. Every chapter includes worked examples and exercises to test understanding. Programming tutorials are offered on the book's web site.

### Think Stats: Exploratory Data Analysis 2nd Edition

Allen B. Downey ... 226 pages - Publisher: O'Reilly Media; 2nd edition (October, 2014) ... Language: English - AmazonSIN: B00OL084UI.

If you know how to program, you have the skills to turn data into knowledge, using tools of probability and statistics. This concise introduction shows you how to perform statistical analysis computationally, rather than mathematically, with programs written in Python. By working with a single case study throughout this thoroughly revised book, you’ll learn the entire process of exploratory data analysis—from collecting data and generating statistics to identifying patterns and testing hypotheses. You’ll explore distributions, rules of probability, visualization, and many other tools and concepts.

New chapters on regression, time series analysis, survival analysis, and analytic methods will enrich your discoveries. Develop an understanding of probability and statistics by writing and testing code + Run experiments to test statistical behavior, such as generating samples from several distributions + Use simulations to understand concepts that are hard to grasp mathematically + Import data from most sources with Python, rather than rely on data that’s cleaned and formatted for statistics tools + Use statistical inference to answer questions about real-world data.

### Firefly Optimization Algorithm using MatLab

I’m very glad to have opportunity to teach you one of the most popular and powerful optimization algorithms in this course.

If you search FireFly optimization algorithm in google scholar, it could be seen that there are many vast range of papers has been published by implementing this optimization algorithm in different fields of science. In this course, after presenting the mathematical concept of each part of the considered optimization algorithm, I write its code immediately in matlab. All of the written codes are available, however, I strongly suggest to write the codes with me. Notice that, if you don’t have matlab or you know another programming language, don’t worry at all. You can simply write the codes in your own programming language because the behind concepts about all of the written codes are presented completely.

### Earth Systems Data Processing and Visualization Using MATLAB

Zekai Sen ... 277 pages - Publisher: Springer; (March, 2019) ... Language: English - AmazonSIN: B07Q7NZPRR.

This book is designed to provide easy means of problem solving based on the science philosophical and logical rules that lead to effective and reliable software at the service of professional earth system scientists through numerical scientific computation techniques. Through careful examination of software illuminated by brief scientific explanations given in the book the reader may develop his/her skills of computer program writing. Science aspects that are concerned with earth systems need numerical computation procedures and algorithms of data collected from the field measurements or laboratory records. The same is also valid for data processing in social sciences and economics. Some of the data assessment and processing procedures are at the large scales and complex, and therefore, require effective and efficient computer programs. Data reduction and graphical display in addition to probabilistic and statistical calculations are among the general purposes of the book. Not only students’ works but also projects of researchers at universities and tasks of experts in different companies depend on reliable software. Especially, potential users of MATLAB in earth systems need a guidance book that covers a variety of practically applicable software solutions.
