# Mathematics for Machine Learning

by

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.

**Remarkable!**

I don't regard this one as an introductory book, but rather a "refresher" on the base of mathematics required for machine learning. Most of the book was a delight to read, I liked the slow building up of ideas in first chapters such as vector spaces, linear independence, basis, rank, linear mapping, inner products, orthogonality, .., etc. to the point that you become comfortable with them when used in more complex chapters, even if you had little or no background on them.

There were so ...more

**Brilliant and Precise**

The book is the missing piece between books like Artificial Intelligence: A Modern Approach and mathematics. It is recommended that you've had exposure to the mathematical topics prior to reading the book, but let that stop you if you're a beginner. Having said that, a course on single variable calculus ought to be under your belt. ...more

A piece of advice: I would not recommend reading this book if you did not have exposure to calculus, introductory linear algebra and probability theory. You should view the first part of the book as a quick refresher, and not as an introduction to these subjects.

It's easy to understand for most parts hence good for software developers (such as me) ...more
